Colorado moves toward permanent daylight saving time
Driving the news: A state House committee unanimously approved a bipartisan bill Monday to end the seasonal time shifts if the federal legislation is approved.
- The legislation adds one other condition before Colorado could "lock the clock" — the approval of similar bills in four other western states. So far three have such laws.
Why it matters: For more than a decade, the ski and tourism industries in Colorado have blocked such legislation from advancing.
- But with public frustration mounting about the twice-yearly ritual, both relented.
- Supporters also pointed to the public health benefits of the move.
What's next: The state bill still needs approval in the House and Senate before it goes to the governor.
