Recent daylight savings change to stick around?
BATON ROUGE - Those who like the new daylight savings time may get more of it than they expected. One lawmaker is proposing that Louisiana observe it year-round.
Abbeville Rep. Jonathan Perry’s bill is scheduled for a hearing Tuesday in the House Commerce Committee. It would require a permanent “spring forward,” prohibiting the state from reverting back to standard time on Nov. 7, when most of the rest of the nation falls back an hour.
Similar proposals have failed in the Louisiana Legislature in previous years, despite arguments the adjustment could reduce energy usage.
