Daylight Saving Time Would Go Away Under State Lawmaker’s Bill

Rep. Jeff Irwin says DST has outlived its usefulness.

Daylight Saving Time began last Sunday. But a Michigan lawmaker says it’s time to end the practice of “springing forward” every spring and “falling backward” each autumn. Representative Jeff Irwin has introduced legislation to eliminate Daylight Saving Time. He tells WDET’s Pat Batcheller that playing with people’s sleep schedules twice a year causes a variety of problems.
