This is news for all who live in or drive thru Kentucky. Here is the info I got off of the NMA's cite. Great news for Kentuckians!
(03/07) A Senate-passed bill allowing motorists to drive faster on most stretches of interstates and parkways in Kentucky won approval from a House panel. The House Transportation Committee revised the bill to specifically list which stretches of interstates and parkways could have a 70 mph speed limit. The version headed to the full House would specify all rural stretches of interstates as eligible for the higher speed limit. The exceptions would be portions of interstate highways in Jefferson County and northern Kentucky.
