Came across this and thought thought I would share. Just sent my representative an email to support. Don't think it will move forward but you never know.

All states should get rid of daylight savings time.
If you need an extra hour, wake up earlier. If you want to save energy, which seems like a bogus excuse for having it in the first place, then go to bed earlier.
DST is one of the more bizarre things we participate in.

we just briefly heard something about it before we went on vacation or maybe it was yesterday; still to tired to know what day is or was what. I am one who hates daylight savings time or should I say, sees no reason for it. There may have been a reason decades ago, not now.
Thanks for bringing it to our attention and I think we too will notify our rep to vote to end DST; certainly reduce the months we use it.

They have withdrawn the original bill and submitted a new one.... This one requires surrounding states to follow before becoming active. Personally I couldn't care less if we are at a different time than Oklahoma but I am sure many do.

That sounds like a cop out to me: it is like the kid that says, if you do such and such I will too or mommy says, if Johnny and Billy's mommy says ok, I will also, but not until. I wish the whole country would go on one time or the other.

This is superior to getting rid of DST. I like late sunsets. Personally though, I don't care as much about this issue as everyone else seems to.

Nixon tried this in the early 70s during the oil embargo. Kids were going to school in the pitch black of night. After a few were injured/killed by cars while walking to school he rescinded it. I remember standing at the bus stop in the dark - I don't think this will fly with parents.

Maybe start school an hour later? Personally I'm not a huge fan of the alternative, I.E permanent standard time.

well they are right now as well so what would be the difference? the only difference I can see would be they would be going to school in the dark even more so. think about it: if we use day light savings time our clock will say 7am but it is only 6am. So your argument is not very accurate. Starting next week the kids will really be in the dark when we go to daylight savings time. I have great grandkids who will be standing at the bus stop then, in the complete dark. This also goes for when school starts back up in the fall. Our granddaughter just cringes when dst comes back. Ot wait a minute, maybe i am confused.. I thought the bill was to keep Daynight Standard time year round like AZ. No, I am right, the bill is to get rid of daylight savings time.
