Colo. lawmakers to debate daylight savings time

DENVER — Spring forward or fall back?

Colorado lawmakers are planning to debate changes to daylight savings time when they convene next year.

The Denver Post reports that one proposal would make daylight savings time permanent, while another would keep the state on standard time year-round.

Sen. Greg Brophy, a Republican from Wray, wants Colorado to permanently run on daylight saving time, giving people more daylight in the evenings to enjoy the outdoors.

Rep. Ed Vigil, a Democrat from Fort Garland, wants Colorado to join Hawaii and Arizona in staying on standard time year-round because he says farmers and ranchers no longer need the extra daylight to work their fields.
