MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Drivers will get a chance to sound off this week on a Republican bill that would raise Wisconsin's speed limit.

The Assembly transportation committee has scheduled a public hearing on the proposal for Tuesday in the state Capitol.

The bill would change the state's current maximum 65 mph speed limit to 70 mph on freeways and highways with four or more lanes.

The measure's prospects look unclear. Assembly Speaker Robin Vos supports the bill but Senate Republican leaders say they have no plans to take it up anytime soon. Gov. Scott Walker has taken no position on it.
