Should Wyoming Do Away With Daylight Saving Time? [POLL, VIDEO]

Subscribe to 106.3 Cowboy Country on

Several states have already taken it upon themselves to end the outdated tradition of Daylight Saving Time.

This weekend most of our nation will set their clocks back an hour.  The good news is we gain an hour of sleep, the bad news is that this semi-annual time change is stressful on our bodies.

The nation first passed a law requiring the time change back in 1918 as an energy saving measure as World War 1 was ending.  But in 1966 the Uniform Time Act was passed by Congress and put into place the dates and times when Americans would change their clocks.

Polls show that most people enjoy having an hour more of daylight in the afternoon versus the morning.  While some call DST an outdated tradition that no longer saves us energy or money.

Two states have voted to opt out of Daylight Saving Time including Arizona and Hawaii and US territories do not recognize DST including American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.

Tell us your thoughts on the semi-annual time shift – Should Wyoming Opt Out of DST?  Or should we keep it in place for continuity with the rest of the nation?
