Bill raises speed limit on Lake Winnipesaukee

A bill bumping up the speed limit in the "Broads" on New Hampshire's Lake Winnipesaukee to 55 mph passed the state Senate.

The bill had originally sought to repeal speed limits on the lake - 45 mph during the day, 30 mph at night - that were made permanent by a law passed last year. But a compromise amendment keeps the speed limits in place elsewhere on the lake while increasing the daytime speed limit to 55 mph in its wide, central section.
