Subtitle
RESOLUTION TO EXPRESS THE WILL OF
ARKANSAS TO ADJUST ARKANSAS'S TIME TO
PRESERVE SUNSHINE; AND TO REQUEST THAT
THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT ALLOW STATES
THE ABILITY TO "SPRING FORWARD" AND
MAINTAIN THAT TIME PERMANENTLY.

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE NINETY-SECOND GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF ARKANSAS:

WHEREAS, 15 U.S.C. 260a, as it existed on December 20, 2018, provides for the advancement of time known as daylight saving time, during the period set by federal law for the advancement of time each calendar year; and

WHEREAS, alternating between Central Daylight Time, also known as "daylight saving time", and Central Standard Time is inconvenient and does not benefit the people of Arkansas; and

WHEREAS, the exemption from daylight saving time available to Arkansas under 15 U.S.C. 260a, is equally inconvenient and lacking benefit as the result of adopting the exemption is to never "spring forward", which would unfortunately dictate more dark hours during the normal awake times of citizens; and

WHEREAS, it is in the best interest of Arkansas that the time for the Central Time Zone as observed by Arkansas be advanced by one (1) hour ahead of Central Standard Time, or "spring forward", and remain at that time permanently,

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE NINETY-SECOND GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF ARKANSAS:

THAT, if the states that border Arkansas express similar interests, the House of Representatives of the Ninety-Second General Assembly of the State of Arkansas call upon the United States Government to amend 15 U.S.C. 260a to allow:

(1) The State of Arkansas to choose the time that best suits Arkansas's interests; and

(2) Arkansas and all other states with similar interests to advance the time for each state's specified time zone by one (1) hour ahead of each state's time zone.
