Daylight Saving Time

Under current federal law, states have the ability to opt out of participating in daylight saving time.  This means by legislative action, the clocks in Idaho would stay on the same time year round.  In other words, the citizens of Idaho would not be required to adjust clocks forward in the spring or backward in the fall of each year.

I have been contacted by several residents of District 21, requesting legislation be introduced that would exempt Idaho from this requirement of federal law.  I am in the process of collecting data regarding the advantages and disadvantages of exercising this option.  It would be helpful if you would give me the benefit of your views regarding this issue and any data you may have to support the expressed position.   or

Thank you in advance for participating with me in our Idaho citizen legislature.
