The Texas House has approved a bill to give the Department of Transportation the power to raise the speed limit to 85-miles per hour.

The speed limit would go up on long stretches of state highways, after enfineering and traffic studies are done.

The 85-miles per hour limit would be the highest in the United Stated, and the second highest in the world.
