Indiana Debating Politics of Time Change

From AP via the Los Angeles Times

For more than three decades, people in some parts of Indiana set their clocks ahead one hour during daylight saving time, but most do not. It is an issue debated each year in the Legislature, in bars and on talk radio.

Some say the existing system hurts the state’s image and stunts commerce. Others, like former Indiana House Speaker John Gregg, scoff at such claims.

“It’s still 24 hours,” said Gregg. “If you want more daylight, get up earlier.”
