Hi-Noon: Bill Targets Daylight-Saving

Forget springing forward. Earlier this week, the Legislature printed a bill to exempt Idaho from observing daylight saving time. Will it pass? Not a chance. But bill sponsor Rep. Wendy Jaquet, D-Ketchum, hopes the legislation will help propel a national discussion on getting rid of the time change. The idea is gaining popularity, especially in the weeks following the spring time change. Jaquet receives correspondence from constituents and voters across the state asking her to bring the time shift’s demise. Jaquet has seven Republican cosponsors for the bill, including House Majority Leader Mike Moyle, R-Star. While the idea might be attractive to sleep-deprived Idahoans still struggling with losing an hour of sleep last week, what are the realistic implications of opting out?/Melissa Davlin, Twin Falls Times-News.

Question: Would you like to see daylight-saving time go away?
