Wyoming’s US Senators have voiced support for the Sunshine Protection Act passed Monday in the Senate and sent over to the House for concurrence there. The bill would make Daylight Saving Time effective year-round. Senator John Barrasso says many in his Wyoming constituency have voiced a desire for such a measure.
“This is an issue that I hear about at home in Wyoming in the grocery store and at church every time we have to change the clocks. We even began church service on Sunday in Casper with the choir singing a song that they had written about the changing of the clocks. So making Daylight Saving Time permanent is going to make a lot of people in Wyoming very happy.”
Senator Cynthia Lummis adds, “Changing technology means that farmers, ranchers and folks in the agriculture industry do not need to rely on something like a biannual time change to help them do their jobs. At this point, Daylight Savings has become more of a headache for parents and schoolchildren than a help for our agriculture industry.”
