Here is a model language for a resolution that legislators in any state can freely.
Title: Stop Dangerous and Antiquated Clock-Changing Federal Daylight Saving Time Mandate
WHEREAS the history of changing clocks relative to the sun for political reasons originated with Ben Franklin, who proposed re-orienting the time to increase productivity as an elaborate practical joke;
WHEREAS the United States has used some version of "Daylight Saving Time" since 1918 when it was rushed into place as a wartime measure after Germany and then England enacted a similar scheme;
WHEREAS after World War I local jurisdictions had some control over how they set their clocks until the passage of the Uniform Time Act of 1966, which mandates that every state participate in the practice of changing the clocks twice per year unless they opt for permanent Standard Time;
WHEREAS uniformity among the 50 states is essential for interstate commerce, even with Arizona and Hawaii having opted for permanent Standard Time;
WHEREAS “Daylight Saving Time” has proven highly beneficial in the early spring, late fall and summer months for health, commerce, recreation and much more, making it highly popular among businesses and the general population;
WHERAS a recent poll showed 68 percent of U.S. residents gave support for Permanent Daylight Saving Time, with only 14 percent opposed;
WHEREAS the overwhelming conclusion of researchers is that the act of changing the clocks twice per year is the direct cause of deadly heart attacks, traffic accidents, workplace injuries, pedestrian deaths, crime, suicides, sleep disruption, and a loss of productivity;
WHEREAS researchers have determined that remaining in Daylight Saving Time year round will save significant amounts of energy in November and February and furthermore will lead to a decrease in childhood obesity by increasing the amount of sunlight after school hours and decrease smog in the winter because rush hour will happen more in the daylight;
WHEREAS the rationale for switching clocks twice per year to aid in the war effort — while based on faulty science — may have been laudable more than 100 years ago, all scientific research and public sentiment in Colorado now clearly favor remaining in Daylight Saving Time year round.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Legislature of the state of Colorado that it is the sentiment of this legislative body and of the people represented by this body that the United States should change what is currently “Daylight Saving Time” to the new “Standard Time” and stay with that time year-round;
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that this Resolution be delivered to the President of the United States, and the Colorado delegation in the U.S. Congress urging passage of any legislation that would put an end to the deadly, energy-wasting, productivity-killing, twice-yearly clock changing.
