State Lawmakers Grapple with Daylight Saving Time
ATLANTA (AP) - As state lawmakers struggle with priorities including balancing the budget and saving Georgia's beloved HOPE scholarship, some in the Senate have found a new issue: daylight saving time.
The matter arose for a second legislative day after the Senate passed a resolution honoring the event after some debate last week. On Monday, senators moved to withdraw the vote and send the resolution back to the rules committee.
Several legislators balked at the resolution as a waste of time amid more pressing issues weighing on the Legislature in its remaining 15 days.
Daylight saving time is Sunday and clocks will spring forward one hour at 2 a.m. in much of the country.
