Subject: Ohio H.B. 162-Speed limit to 70 mph
On Wednesday, June 3, 2009, The Ohio House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee will hold a second hearing for H.B. 162 that would raise the speed limit to 70 m.p.h. on Ohio’s Interstates. The hearing will take place at 10:30 AM in Room 017 (in the basement of the Statehouse). The agenda states that the hearing is open to Proponents, Opponents, and Interested Parties.
You can be sure that the government and insurance representatives will be there to claim the entire population of Ohio will be decimated by raising the speed limit five MPH. It would be great if there are some NMA members there supporting the bill—in fact asking that the limit be raised to 75 MPH so it comes a little closer to representing reality on Ohio’s Interstates.
