Louisiana Considering Task Force To Study Daylight Saving Versus Standard Time

May 4, 2018

The state legislature is interested in setting up a task force to study daylight saving time versus standard time. Covington Representative Mark Wright says he gets asked about moving the clocks back an hour every fall all the time.


Florida recently passed legislation to stay on Daylight Saving Time year round, but Congress has yet to agree with Florida’s Sunshine Protection Act. Wright says studies have shown turning the clock back an hour creates problems.


Wright has a resolution calling for a task force that will report back its findings to the legislature next year.
