Arizona legislators have proposed to ADOPT Daylight Savings Time in Arizona.
See the text of the “prefiled” bill here.
An early news piece from Phoenix CBS affiliate CBS5AZ.com reports information from two of the sponsoring legislators here. The news piece does not seem to quote any substantive research on why Daylight Savings Time is a good thing. Partial quote, emphasis mine:
“I support it because I think it will help business in Arizona and help us be more competitive,” said State Rep. Paul Boyer, R-Phoenix, one of the bill’s co-sponsors.
Boyer believes the reasons Arizona opted out of daylight saving time are outdated and are potentially hurting the state’s economy.
“I think we’re less productive currently,” said Boyer.
