SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah)- Sunday, November 6th marks the end of Daylight Saving Time. All across the country clocks will be turned back one hour, but one Utah representative thinks the change is out of date.
Rep. Norm Thurston, district 64, has drafted a bill for the upcoming 2017 General Session to allow Utahns to vote whether to end or continue participation in Daylight Saving Time.
Rep. Thurston wants to let the voices of those who are affected by the changing of the clock be heard.
“Changing the clocks in the spring and fall has real impacts on physical and emotional health and productivity,” he said. “I hear most often from parents with special needs children and from adults with health issues that are sensitive to change in routine.”
Two states currently do not observe Daylight Saving Time–Arizona and Hawaii.
