CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A House committee has endorsed a proposal that would change the state’s fine schedule for motorists traveling on stretches of highways that have been set to an 80 mph limit.

The House Transportation, Highways and Military Affairs Committee voted 6-3 Thursday for House Bill 181. The bill now goes to the full House for debate.

The Wyoming Department of Transportation increased the speed limits to 80 mph on nearly 500 miles of highways in July after a bill was passed last year that allowed Wyoming to be one of the few states that could have speed limits up to 80 mph.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1yTZFRG ) that the committee voted to reject a separate bill that would have required variable speed limit signs on highways with 80 mph limits.
