state lawmakers considering raising speed limit to 85 mph
TYLER — State lawmakers are pushing for the speed limit in parts of west rural Texas to be changed from 80 miles per hour to 85 miles per hour. But researchers say speeding, increases fuel consumption and could end up costing tax payers more in the long run. However State Representative Leo Berman, R-District 6, says it's a great idea and those who drive a lot on those roads know how to save on gasoline or deisel.
