A bill allowing Nevada to increase speed limits up to 80 mph has passed out of the state Senate.
Senators voted to approve SB 2 on Thursday in a 16-4 vote. The bill now moves to the Assembly.
The bill is sponsored by Republican Sen. Don Gustavson and would allow the state’s transportation department to increase highway speed limits up to 80 mph if it chooses.
A number of police agencies and the state transportation department testified against the bill, saying it could increase fatal crashes.
