  Original Published: 7/1/2013The speed limit increased to 70 miles-per-hour, effective Monday, on rural sections of interstate highway in Ohio. Lieutenant Governor Mary Taylor said during a visit Monday to the WMFD studios, she and Governor John Kasich view the higher speed limit as a component of increasing commerce through the state. She says coupled with a $3-billion increase for road and bridge improvements in the state's new transportation budget, the speed limit increase is considered an important part of helping people travel as quickly and safely as possible.  Lt. Gov. Taylor also talked about the income tax cuts contained in the new two-year state budget, and how the spending plan affects school funding. We will bring you her comments on those subjects, coming up this week on NewsWatch.
