Resolve to Enact a Standardized Time (REST) in Washington State

Changing our clocks arbitrarily twice a year is a burden on Washington state families, businesses, and schools. Removing the requirement to change our clocks ahead in Spring and back in Fall would reduce various burdens, and allow Washingtonians to 'REST easy' knowing they no longer have to adjust their clocks, wake up children early (or late), or make other random adjustments required by the current codes. A few other states already do not observe the time change, and more are making changes to do away with this random and arbitrary clock change that numerous studies have shown do not accomplish the goals set out in the original provisions (energy savings, improved safety, etc).
By maintaining a steady timeclock year round, Washingtonians will no longer remain beholden to the outdated and impractical practice of adjusting our clocks twice a year.
I've written a proposed Bill for the State Legislature to act as a guideline, based on the recent "Sunshine Protection Act" from Florida. It is simple, straightforward, and hopefully can be adopted quickly. http://www.winlockeggspress.com/DST/Resolution%20to%20Enact%20a%20Standard%20Time.pages.pdf
