Delaware Lawmakers Introduce Legislation to End Daylight Saving Time
Legislation introduced last week would seek to move Delaware into the Atlantic time zone, one hour ahead of Eastern Standard time. This would then exempt the state from daylight saving time.
Some lawmakers say daylight saving time is antiquated and needs to go. Senator Brian Pettyjohn (R - 19th District) is among them. "There's actually some hard statistics that show heart attacks increase, after daylight saving time goes into effect," he says. "You have accidents that increase as well."
The legislation would require Pennsylvania, Maryland, and New york to do the same. The federal government would ultimately have the final say on the move.
