Bill to end Daylight Savings Time in Colo. fails

DENVER — Coloradoans will continue to change their clocks once a year during daylight savings time after a proposal to end the time change failed in the Legislature.

Democratic Rep. Edward Vigil, who sponsored the bill, joked after the bill failed that it was “a dark day for Colorado.”

Vigil’s measure would have repealed the advancing of one hour the second Sunday in March and moving back one hour the first Sunday in November. It would mean Colorado would permanently be on U.S. Mountain Standard Time.

Vigil says he was bringing the bill on behalf of working mothers, children, pet owners and other people “who just can’t deal with daylight savings.” He cited a study that says people suffer more workplace injuries after daylight savings.

A legislative committee rejected the proposal.
