A proposal to boost Ohio's speed limit to 75 mph on rural interstate highways and the turnpike has been scrapped.
House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger's office said the proposed increase would be pulled from a $7 billion, two-year transportation budget.
The proposal would have made Ohio only the second state entirely east of the Mississippi River to have such a high limit. The other is Maine. A total of 16 states, mostly out West, have at least a 75 mph speed limit.
