Texans Against Daylight Savings Time

Daylight Savings Time is an outmoded idea whose time has passed. Signers agree that The State of Texas should no longer recognize Daylight Savings Time! Below is a sample of the legislation that will be submitted to the Legislature for the 2009 Legislative session. (Section or Article ____________. Standard time) A. The standard time in Texas shall be the solar time of the Ninetieth meridian west of Greenwich, commonly known as central time and also known as Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) 6. B. This section shall not be construed to affect the standard time established by United States law governing the movements of common carriers engaged in interstate commerce or the time for performance of an act by an officer or department of the United States, as established by a statute, lawful order, rule or regulation of the United States or an agency thereof. C. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary by the United States government relating to adoption of daylight saving time by all of the states, the state of Texas elects to reject such time and elects to continue in force the terms of subsection A, relating to standard time in Texas. D. The rejection of daylight saving time as provided for in this section may be changed by future legislative action.
