    Once again, the idea of year-round daylight saving time has been brought up (as it is all the time, and that's fine). Problem is, the Federal law that mandates DST doesn't permit it year-found; states must either switch back and forth or stay on standard time. Colorado was going to vote on year-round DST until they realized this fact, and the vote was then canceled.

    My vote (and I acknowledge that your opinion may be different) is to leave DST as it is and not to change it just because one other neighboring state does.

    Whew! License plates, fireworks, arresting federal agents, and DST decisions! I'm sure glad hard decisions are being made by our leaders! I was beginning to worry that nothing important was going to be accomplished this session.

    Haha! Good one!

    Gotta admit - it hasn't yet come close to last years "official State Hand Gun" from last session.

    Important stuff....

    Having grown up in Utah with daylight savings time and now living in Arizona for the past 32 years with no DLST, I much prefer leaving the clocks alone.

    Yes, its only common sense that this switching is an affront to the natural behavior of our lives. The mental and stress disorders associated with this DLST is very disruptive to family and personal lives

    There is no need for it anymore, and those who do golf have all day long to hit the links and sports or other imaginary attributes associated with saving time is a hoax. We have what is called body clocks and its disruptive to business and jobs and workers make unnatural adjustments to natural body language.

    Every argument for DLST is the same augment to do away with it and let natural events and seasons regulate our habits and family life.

    Once again, common sense dies in the committee.

    How about putting it to a vote of the people?

    Some of us like DST.

    Lets just stay on daylight saving time. No more switching back and forth. Just stick with one or the other!
