    all of Indiana is on DST since 2006. there are just a few counties up by Chicago, and in the south around Evansville which are on central time.

That's it.
    That would create a time conflict with other regions... It would also add or subtract 2 hours not one.

    It wouldn't work...

    This whole concept is almost a paradox...

    If Florida wanted the extra hour then they would need to change their clocks back and forward 4 times a year...

    The logistics to make it work are so bizarre and not even worth it.

    Holy **** I can't believe I'm reading this.

    So imagine that instead of how you do it today where you move your clock an hour forward in the spring and an hour back in the fall, that you move it forward one hour in the spring and never change it again after that.

    How is this so hard to understand?

    So when it's 5 in Chicago and 6 in NYC those in Florida want it to be 5:30?

    What about the other states that fall on that line? in one state it's 5:30, the next it's 5 and the next it's 6... That is unreasonable and highly confusing if you travel allot or live on a boarder.

    Because that wouldn't work - I've been saying this forever.

    If everyone else moves their clock twice a year - what makes you think Florida is so special from that?

    Time is nothing more than a measurement - if we need to change our clocks twice a year - so does Florida otherwise they will fall back on time.

    It doesn't work and the idea is stupid.

    Seriously, what location does Florida have in our solar system that makes Florida able to change their clocks one time a year when every other geographical location changes it twice?

    Unbelievable.

    If I understand correctly, it works like this.

    Date DST State Non DST State
    Spring 1 0300 0200
    Fall 1 0200 0200
    Spring 2 0300 0200
    Fall 2 0200 0200
    Spring 3 0300 0200
    Fall 3 0200 0200

    So for FL, it would just stay at 0300 rather than 0200.

    States are able to choose whether or not to participate in DST. Arizona doesn't. Does that make them any less of a State? Oh, btw, if a State only changed the clock once a year, what do you think the end result would be?
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    I don't think it is possible to lose time. Time is linear and exists no matter how it is measured. The position of the sun is not really relevant. All the consequences of DST is to make it dark one hour later. There is some structural advantage to this in that "rush hour" would be in daylight so tired drivers would have a better chance of survival on their commute home.

    This proposed idea by this politician from Florida is so silly it actually works against it's actual intent.

    The sun can't always be in the middle of the sky at noon - the laws that be won't allow it to happen.
