Both Democrats and Republicans turned down a proposal placing a fifty-five mile an hour limit on all transport trucks.

Members argued that disrupting traffic flow with seperate speeds for trucks and passenger vehicles would pose a greater hazard.

Highway Patrol Superintendant, Colonel Fred Mills disagrees. He says with all speed limits going up, now is the time for caution.

Contents: I think the public consensus is to do something, but I think also the public wants us to do somethng that's reasonable and something that's going to be safe for the motoring public.

The House will continue debating Missouri speed laws.
