Salt Lake City, UT) — Utah could become the third state to stop the practice of Daylight Saving Time. Representative Lee Perry is in favor of switching to standard time.
Utahns agree with Representative Perry, saying the dark morning hours during Daylight Saving Time are dangerous. A concern about ditching Daylight Saving Time is the economy. The Vice President for Lagoon Amusement Park Dick Andrew says it “would be a major blow” to Utah’s tourism and entertainment industries.
Arizona and Hawaii are the only two states who do not participate in Daylight Saving Time.
