Whereas Daylight Savings Time (DST) has been shown to directly cost the US economy $434 million in lost productivity,

Whereas DST is linked to an increase in the number and severity of workplace accidents in the first week after it starts,

Whereas DST is linked to an increase in the incidence of heart attacks on the Monday after it starts,

Whereas DST is linked to more auto accidents on the Monday after it starts,

and

Whereas DST interrupts natural sleep patterns, which when interrupted can result in loss of concentration, loss of memory, loss of performance, increase in fatigue and increase in daytime sleepiness,

Daylight Savings Time is an artifact of a bygone era, one we rightly should honor and remember, but there comes a time in society when programs devised when people used a horse and buggy as the primary form of transportation need to be retired.
