SB157 • The idea of dumping daylight saving time may be ahead of its time, or behind the times, as Utah legislators killed it again Thursday as they have annually for several years.
The Senate Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment Committee decided not even to make a motion on SB157, which would have abandoned daylight saving time in Utah. Instead, the committee adjourned. Its sponsor, Sen. Steve Urquhart, R-St. George, said he does not plan to push the bill any more this year.
Urquhart said daylight saving time endangers children who go to school in the dark before clocks switch back to standard time, and said switching times can be confusing and a hassle.
