Original Title

Permanent Daylight Savings Time

Summary

What it does

This bill would make Daylight Saving Time permanent in Arkansas if the U.S. government amends federal law to allow states to set their own time preference AND if all the states bordering Arkansas intend to adopt Daylight Saving Time permanently. This is not a new effort, and it is awaiting action in the federal government's Sunshine Protection Act.

What happened?
This bill was sent to interim study, meaning no action will be taken on it this session. Another bill on this topic, HB 1104, failed in House committee.
