House passes bill requiring meeting to discuss daylight saving time
SALT LAKE CITY — In response to complaints about switching clocks back and forth for daylight saving time, the House voted 54-14 to pass a bill requiring the Governor's Office of Economic Development to hold a meeting on the issue.
“So my bill says, let’s have GOED host a meeting and bring to that meeting various constituent groups who are concerned about this issue,” said bill sponsor Rep. Ronda Menlove, R-Garland.
HB197 states the office would report on the meeting to interim committees of the Legislature.
“I think (daylight saving time) is a terrible idea, and it has been since the start of it,” said Rep. David Lifferth, R-Eagle Mountain.
Lifferth compared daylight saving time to having a blanket too short for a bed and cutting off the top of it to sew on the bottom.
