Oregon Lawmakers Looking at Two Bills That Would End Daylight Saving Time in the State

Posted: Updated:
 SALEM, Ore. (AP) - The twice-a-year ritual of resetting clocks would come to an end under two bills introduced in the Oregon Senate.

A Senate committee held a brief discussion Tuesday on eliminating daylight saving time in Oregon. It did not vote on the bills.

The idea has cropped up in more than a half-dozen statehouses, but it's generated more talk than action. In Oregon, there was no sign that lawmakers seemed ready to depart from the other two states in the Pacific time zone.

Still, the proposal invited dozens of emailed comments from constituents to lawmakers

Daylight saving time proponents like the extra evening daylight for outdoor recreation and family time. Critics say it hasn't delivered on its promise of energy savings.
