Lower Speed Limit Proposed to Help Environment

State officials are considering a possible decrease in the highway speed limit to help the environment.

They propose lowering it to 65 miles per hour from 70 as a way to lower carbon dioxide emissions. The Kansas Energy Council Greenhouse Gas Policy Committee recommended the measure.

The committee's work will be considered by the entire Energy Council August 13th.
