ANNAPOLIS -- Gov. William Donald Schaefer has decided he wants the public to help him decide whether they should be allowed to drive 65 mph on some roads.
The governor said yesterday that he will hold a rare veto hearing on legislation that would permit the state to increase the maximum speed limit from 55 mph to 65 mph on about 160 miles of rural interstate highways.
"Many Marylanders have expressed opinions on the 65-mph speed limit bill. We have heard conflicting data and claims from proponents and opponents of the bill. I want another chance to hear from both sides," the governor said.
