MADISON - A proposal that would raise the speed limit on Wisconsin's interstates to 70 miles per hour may run out of gas in the state Senate. Republican Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald told The Associated Press on Friday that the bill does not currently have enough support to pass.
 

And bills designed to toughen Wisconsin's notoriously weak drunken driving laws that passed the state Assembly with bipartisan support may be going nowhere in the Senate. Republican Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald tells The Associated Press this weekend he would prefer to spend money on setting up special drunken driving treatment courts statewide before considering the bills.
