Bishop introduces act to let states determine the time
WASHINGTON — A Utah Congressman says states should decide on their own what time it is.
Rep. Rob Bishop put forth the “Daylight Act” to allow states to decide if they’ll observe daylight saving time or standard time year-round, or keep the status quo of switching clocks twice a year.
In his announcement, Utah’s first district congressman said, “The range of industry and lifestyle is so varied across our country, it only makes sense for states to have the ability to set their watches the way they best see fit.”
Hawaii and Arizona have opted out of daylight saving time.
Bishop’s office says the other 48 states legally cannot opt out of standard time.
