RANT: Daylight Savings Here to Stay?

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Liking the recent switch to
daylight-saving time? One lawmaker is proposing that Louisiana
observe it year-round.
Abbeville Rep. Jonathan Perry's bill would require a permanent
"spring forward," prohibiting the state from reverting back to
standard time on Nov. 7, when most of the rest of the nation falls
back an hour.
A planned Tuesday hearing on the bill was postponed until later
in the legislative session.
Similar proposals have failed in the Louisiana Legislature in
previous years, despite arguments the adjustment could reduce
energy usage.
