A bill that would
place the entire state of Indiana on daylight-saving time has made its way
through the House, and could face a Senate vote as early as Wednesday, April
The bill, SB127,
would have the entire state changing its clocks. Currently, 77 of Indiana’s 82
counties in the Eastern time zone do not recognize the time change.
The Senate Rules
Committee passed the bill by a narrow 6-5 margin on Monday, April 25. Sen.
Allen Paul, R-Richmond, cast the deciding vote to move the measure forward;
however, he has said he plans to vote against the measure in the full Senate
If the bill makes it
through the Senate, it will go before Gov. Mitch Daniels, who is expected to
sign it into law.
