Michigan lawmakers are one step closer to increasing speed limits on "rural Michigan interstates and highways".

According to Click On Detroit, the Michigan Senate passed the bill with a 28-8 vote just yesterday. Before the speed limits are just raised though, the bill requires that Michigan's Transportation Department only raise the speed limit "if a safety study shows it's OK." Some stretches could have a higher or lower speed limit depending on those studies.
