Illinois lawmakers debate daylight savings time change

Everyone has an viewpoint about modifying the clocks two times a yr. Illinois lawmakers do, as well, and decided it was time to host a listening to to discuss their possibilities. 

Many point out reps launched payments this year to transfer Illinois to long-lasting daylight saving time or typical time. Tim Butler, R-Springfield, and David Welter, R-Morris, have charges to move Illinois to common time all year — the recent winter season time. State Reps. Bob Morgan, D-Deerfield, Adam Niemerg, R-Dieterich, Tom Morrison, R-Palatine, and Mike Zalewski, D-Chicago, have submitted bills to make daylight saving time all calendar year — the present-day summer season time. 

As anyone who receives up before than most men and women, Butler prefers common time mainly because it suggests additional daylight in the morning. Having said that, Zalewski pointed out that our latest life style entails more night things to do, so additional daylight later on in the day is very best.
