CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - Some state lawmakers are looking into upping the speed limits on highways and interstates.

The bill would raise the limit for the areas by 5 miles per hour. That would bump speeds on interstates from 70 to 75 miles per hour.

The Des Moines Register reports it would cost $2.3 million to replace speed limit signs.

The House Transportation Subcommittee examined the bill yesterday, recommending to postpone it.
