Lawmaker Aims to Do Away With Daylight Saving Time

(KCPW News) Another state lawmaker is pushing to eliminate daylight saving time in Utah. Republican Representative Jim Nielson of Bountiful has introduced a bill to exempt Utah from the federal government’s time change, where clocks are moved forward an hour in the spring so that afternoons have more daylight, and moved back in the fall. As KCPW’s Whittney Evans reports, Nielson says the bi-annual adjustment isn’t right for Utah and one researcher says he might be right.
