CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - A bill introduced in the Nevada Legislature would shave traveling time for motorists through the state's wide open territory.

SB191 sponsored by Republican Sen. Don Gustavson would increase the allowable speed limit to 85 mph from 75 mph.

The measure was introduced Monday in the Nevada Senate.

Existing law gives the Department of Transportation authority to set the speed limit on highways it builds or maintains, such as Interstate 80 that stretches 410-miles across northern Nevada from Utah to the California line.

The bill would allow NDOT to up the speed limit to 85 on roads if it determines the higher speed limit would be safe.
