Daylight Saving Time

An article in today’s Denver Post reports that during the upcoming Legislative session, two Colorado legislators are going to introduce bills dealing with daylight saving time. Introduced separately and without the sponsors’ knowledge of the other bill, one of the bills would allow Colorado to stay on daylight savings time year round (allowing it to stay light later in the evenings) while the other would have Colorado stay on standard time year round, like our neighboring state of Arizona. According to the article, Colorado has changed its clocks twice a year since 1966. However this will not be the first time in recent years that Colorado has dealt with this issue. In response, the Colorado Legislative Council created two Issue Briefs on daylight savings time, one in 2003 and one in 2007, both available online from our library.
