Another year, another attempt at eliminating the twice-a-year time change in Missouri. Republican State Representative Jamie Gragg of Ozark has pre-filed a bill that would make Daylight Saving Time the new Standard Time in the Show-me State:
The decision would not be Missouri’s alone, though. Even if the bill becomes state law, Gragg says Congressional approval would be required for Missouri’s switch to permanent Daylight Saving Time. The U.S. Senate passed a similar bill last year that would have adopted Daylight Time nationwide, but the House failed to take it up. It’s been reintroduced in Congress this year.
