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.

    Cost of lost productivity due to the time change generally outweighs the gains from utility savings. As a society, we do not regulate our behaviors according to the sun but according to the clock. Daylight savings time is an artificial concept that has no impact on how many hours a day the sun is actually in the sky. Utility savings are a phantom.

    In summer it is light outside until 9pm which is totally unnecessary and hard for young kids and people who work very early. It takes people at least a month to start feeling normal after the change but studies show we never totally adjust and it disrupts our circadian rhythm. Why should we have to suffer twice a year, once from waking too early and once from feeling like we're working late, and suffer interrupted sleep schedules due to waking against sun cycles during summer? There is no escaping d.s.t. either because its manditory, you MUST feel bad. You must wake early.

    In the past people did not work by the clock they work by the day light. If 8 pm is not long enough day light for you and it goes longer on regular time then you have a problem plus if it is suppose to save energy with day light savings you are not you are hotter when you get in later so you move the airconditiong down to cool off. Regular time you would be in the house earlier and already cool down You have to turn on your lights more in the morning so you are not saving there either
