Yup, for some reason Sumsion wants to join Arizona and Hawaii in doing away with daylight savings time because…it is a pain to fall back?
Actually, I suspect that this is the lamest attempt yet by the legislature to take on the federal government.
Yes, I suspect that this is a message bill at its worse – this bill will achieve absolutely nothing other than confuse people and not actually change how the government does business in relation to the states.
I mean, what other reason could we honestly have for doing this? It is not that great of an inconvenience to spring forward during the summer, and an argument can be made that an extra hour of light makes our life a little bit better by allow us to, say, drive in an extra hour of light or enjoy our parks more after work during the long and enjoyable summer months. Sure, we all complain when we have to fall back – but really, is Sumsion that big of a morning hater to propose this law?
I frankly just don’t see the need and, therefore, am opposed. Oh, and if this is an attack on the federal government, all I have to say is that this is a rather lame attempt to do so.
