Arizona, the lone mainland state to not observe daylight saving time, will have to conform with the rest of the continental United States if a new bill is passed.
A November Rasmussen poll found 43 percent of Americans say there’s no need for daylight saving time. In Utah, lawmakers said they will propose a bill this year to no longer observe it following a study that suggested support in the state for the move. Colorado, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming are also considering the possibility.
A 2009 study published in the Journal of Applied Psychology found indirect evidence that daylight saving time leads to an increase in workplace injuries and a loss of 40 minutes of sleep the Monday after switching to standard time.
