I love the extra hour of daylight, I don't need to wake up any earlier with my sleeping problems.

So year around standard time, then?

That’s my pick too. I need an early dawn to wake up well in the mornings. During daylight saving time, I have to set my alarm for when its still dark and it kills me.

Nah, I like daylight savings. I don't mind standard time, but much prefer the longer days.

Hopefully you realize the days nor the daylight are any longer regardless of whether we're on Standard or Daylight Saving Time.

I prefer having longer evenings after work or school is over, and don't mind getting up when it's still dark. So given the choice, I'd like to keep DST year-round.

Many years ago, a senator from one of the midwestern states got upset with changing to DST ... he said the cows in his state didn't like the extra hour of daylight.

This legislation is only for Louisiana. I think if Louisiana was the only state that remained on Standard time, it woud cause more problems that it would solve. If a change is made, it needs to be on a national level, not just local.

Arizona and Hawaii just did away with it. Louisiana would be the third state.
