Putting an End to Daylight Savings Time in Tennessee is Possible?

A bill pending in the Tennessee legislature would have the state adopt a uniform time system.

The bill, sponsored by Republican Rep. Curry Todd of Collierville, would take effect in July if passed, and so would make daylight savings time permanent in Tennessee. The state currently moves clocks forward an hour each spring and back an hour each fall.

Todd told the Knoxville News Sentinel that he thinks the bill would have only positive effects. 

Although a couple of lawmakers expressed reservations about the change last week, the bill passed out of subcommittee. It is scheduled for a vote this week in the House State Government Committee.
