that would cause the state to be in a different time zone than the rest of the east coast states and cause all kinds of havoc for airlines, commerce, business communication and probably cost us a ton in economic losses

Why?...no different than going from Georgia to Alabama...and part of Florida is already in a different time zone. If someone goes from Atlanta to Birmingham....it doesn't cause all kinds of havoc

Florida is the 3rd most populated state and has a much larger economy than podunk Alabama. The major cities of FL fall in the EST and that's where the trouble will occur. There's no reason for reversing DST. Best to stay on the same zone as NYC where all the major banking/financial markets are.

Many states have debated getting rid of the time change:
