At least one Kansas lawmaker wants to do away with Daylight Savings Time.

This seems like a waste of time. Pun fully intended.

In early January, a Wichita TV station reported State Rep. Kristey Williams, R-August, plans to take a swing at Daylight Savings Time. Last year she introduced a bill that would exempt the state from “fall back” and “spring forward.” A bill she plans to introduce this year, House Bill No. 2422, would establish daylight saving time as the permanent standard time for the entire state. Currently, 101 of Kansas’ 105 counties use Central Standard Time, while Sherman, Wallace, Greeley and Hamilton, all of which border Colorado, use Mountain Time.
