A decision on Missouri's speed limits is entering its final stage after a committee of both House and Senate members proposed a substitute bill. The substitute is similar to the version passed by the House but faces opposition in the Senate. Butler Senator Harold Caskey says that speed limits should go back to pre-1974 levels. Caskey says that the Senate committee members did not represent the Senate's position.

Further debate is expected this week and a decision must be made soon because the deadline to set new limits is fast approaching. From the Capitol, I'm Brian Higgins.
