70 MPH Limit Heads to Quinn's Desk

The General Assembly has given final approval to a bill that would raise the speed limit on most Illinois interstates and toll roads to 70 miles per hour.


That bill now goes to Governor Pat Quinn, who hasn’t said yet if he will sign it.


But some key members of Quinn’s cabinet oppose the bill.


Transportation Secretary Ann Schneider says it will lead to more crashes, and fatalities, on Illinois highways.


The Illinois State Police also opposed the legislation.
