Montana Is One Step Closer To Year-Round Daylight Savings


Lawmakers have tried to exempt Montana from switching between standard time and daylight savings time nearly a dozen times in the last two decades. Now, a bill heading to the governor’s desk could actually make it happen. James Bradley from the UM Legislative News Service reports Senate Bill 254passed out of the legislature Monday. It would stop the state from falling back an hour in November if three other states pass similar legislation. The federal government also needs to give Montana its blessing. There was bipartisan support and opposition to the bill.
