Daylight Saving Ends Sunday
Written by Andrew-Rossi on November 3, 2017
It’s almost time to turn your clocks back.
Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday, Nov. 5 – meaning when the clock strikes 2 a.m., we’ll be “falling back” an hour to 1 a.m.
For morning people, that means there will be an extra hour of sunlight in the morning. However, that also means your evening commute may be in the dark.
Despite being practiced by most states, lawmakers in several states are increasingly trying to avoid the time change, claiming it is unnecessary. Representative Dan Laursen of Powell supported a bill last year that would eliminate the practice, pointing out that daylight saving time lasts seven and a half months a year, while standard time lasts just four and a half months. He says the time changes are exhausting, and people are less productive when adjusting.
The bill was defeated in the Senate, with opponents arguing that staying on one time would put Wyoming out of sync with surrounding states and cause even more confusion.
