Speed limit increase
After Illinois increased it speed limit to 70 miles per hour, Tittl introduced a bill that would increase Wisconsin's speed limit to 70 miles per hour. Tittl noted that Wisconsin was the sole state in the Midwest that still had a 65 miles per hour speed limit, despite a recent uptick of states increasing their speed limits. Tittl cited a recent 140-mile drive he made from his home to Madison. He drove exactly 65 miles per hour to see the relative speeds of other cars on the road.
"...I was the absolute slowest person on the road," he said at a news conference announcing the bill. "I did not pass anyone. And there was hundreds of people that went past me."
Tittl said he expected bipartisan support for his bill, and it earned the support of Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R) quickly. However, State Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R) said that the Senate did not plan to take up the issue any time soon, and Governor Scott Walker (R) did not take an immediate position on the bill.
