Lawmaker Wants To Eliminate Daylight Saving Time

(Olympia, WA)  --  A move is underway in Olympia to do away with Daylight Saving Time in Washington.  Republican State Senator Jim Honeyford has introduced a measure that would keep the state on Pacific Standard Time year round.  Honeyford cites a 2014 study published in a medical journal, which found the number of heart attacks increased 24 percent on the Monday following Daylight Saving Time, compared with the daily average for the weeks surrounding the time change.  Honeyford's bill is waiting to be heard in the Senate State Government Committee.
