Daylight Saving Time ends in Utah at 2 am this Sunday.  In light of recent polls favoring doing away with the bi-annual change, the subject is likely to once again come up during next year's legislative session.

The Governor’s Office of Economic Development, or GOED, is collecting data about how Utahns feel about Daylight Saving Time.

More than 30 people gathered at the Clark Planetarium in downtown Salt Lake City to voice their opinion about Daylight Saving Time.  A majority of those attending said they’d prefer to move to standard time year round like Arizona. Many who made comments expressed similar ideas to those of Provo resident Ed Bernsen.
