Arkansas Could Scrap Daylight Saving Time
Are you ready for 'Daylight Saving Time?' this year it will happen on Sunday morning but this may be the last time we may have to do this old tradition.
Arkansas is one of 16 states that have legislation on the books to get rid of daylight saving time.
From the Arkansas Democrat:
House Bill 1368 by Rep. Sarah Capp, R-Ozark, would make Arkansas the third state to observe standard time year-round.
What does this mean for you? We would stay on the standard time, (time we are on now) and not observe daylight saving time. So in the summer, it will get dark at around 8 and not almost 9 like it does now.
There are currently two states, Hawaii and Arizona that are already doing this. Daylight Saving Time was enacted in Worl War I to help save energy.
The Democrat did a poll and 56% of people would be in favor of eliminating Daylight Saving Time. What do you think?
