Missouri House panel considers eliminating daylight savings

Jefferson City, MO ( KTRS ) A Republican lawmaker says Missouri should lead the way in eliminating the annual ritual of switching clocks an hour forward and then back again.

Rep. Mike Kelley of Lamar is sponsoring a constitutional amendment that would ask voters whether Missouri should use daylight savings time all the time.

Under his measure, Missouri residents would switch to daylight savings time in March 2017 and never turn their clocks back again.

During a committee hearing Monday, some House members questioned how putting Missouri on a different schedule from neighboring states would affect businesses.

One lawmaker suggested that Missouri should wait for other states to act so businesses are not placed at a disadvantage.

But Kelley said Missouri businesses already operate globally and other countries do not follow daylight savings time.
