Having driven to Jackson Hole, WY last week, I can attest that the drive through some parts of Idaho can be a little dull, to say the least. So would getting through the state faster make things better? Possibly.

A senator is proposing to raise the speed limit on Idaho highways and the Senate Transportation committee has already approved it.

KTVB says the speed limit on the interstate may go from 75 to 80 miles per hour and from 65 to 70 miles per hour on state highways. The bill now has to go to the Idaho Senate. Before the Senate makes a decision, the Idaho Transportation Department will have to conduct a study to evaluate the risks of a higher speed limit.
