Daylight savings time is an antiquated process that some areas and states have disregarded.  It costs the American economy $434 million (as high as 1.7 Billion for the year) and has been attributed to increased health issues.  It has been shown to impair judgement, increase workplace injuries, decrease student test scores and decrease stock-market returns.  

Daylight saving time was originally introduced to save fuel. But the belief that it helps people conserve energy remains questionable.  

No matter your sentiment toward daylight saving time, accumulating evidence reveals that the costs of shifting to daylight saving time cut across society. Although the negative outcomes are varied, the singular solution seems quite simple: Rather than change the clocks, we should change public policy. Many state legislatures have taken up this cause, with statehouses coast to coast reconsidering the annual practice.

In our modern age, daylight savings is more of a hindrance than a help.  Let our voices be heard, leave the time on daylight savings time (summer time) and leave it there.
