Kansas may be taking the same route (pun intended) as Texas, considering a couple bills that would allow the Kansas Department of Transportation to raise the state’s highest speed limit on highways from 75 to 80 miles per hour.

KMBC.com reports that a decision could be made as soon as next week by lawmakers to send one of the bills to the full Kansas House of Representatives. Supporters of the bills say the change would help regulations match reality, as many people drive faster in open country. Kansas’ Department of Transportation opposes the bills.
