A number of states have forward-thinking legislators negotiating the waters in their own states, but there's now one state who's taken the model resolution I wrote, and introduced it into the legislative process.
First alphabetically, and now first to introduce, is Alabama. Here's a link to the resolution from the state site. Here's a link to the summary on this resolution from a bill-tracking service. (Full disclosure, I'm a shareholder in that service.)
This is huge news.
Remember, this whole thing started as me just complaining about the difficulty of adjusting twice per year, and now it is officially a legislative initiative that could quickly spread to all of the 48 states that are currently stuck in the clock-changing rut.
Thanks to Sen. Glover for having the courage to go first.
If you, too, hate changing clocks twice per year and want to get involved, just find your representatives to the state legislature, and urge them to pass this resolution. Be sure to tell them it's a resolution — not a law — which makes it much easier to get approved.
State lawmakers really do enjoy hearing from constituents, and with the time change this weekend and the deadly Monday Morning coming up, this is the perfect time to get involved.
If you happen to be reading this on Friday morning, March 6, tune in to HuffPo Live at about 10:15 a.m. EST, and be sure to join the conversation. The more we can show how much the people are tired of the clock-changing, the easier it will be to convince legislators to take action.
If you can't tune in, go take this one-question poll from AccuWeather. When I took it public sentiment was more than two-to-one against the clock changing.
