US- pendulum swings back against daylight saving time

Beginning in 1966, every state in the country except Arizona and Hawaii started adjusting their clocks under the Uniform Act that permanently established daylight saving time nationwide.

In 2015, lawmakers in 10 states have proposed legislation challenging what, for many, is a twice-a-year headache, and one they just endured again earlier this month. States that might opt out include Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Michigan, Missouri, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, Utah and Washington.

The officials all cite different reasons from health to safety concerns. Some just consider the practice pointless and antiquated.
