BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Republican lawmaker who put forward a bill intended to eliminate time changes in Idaho due to daylight saving time says he’ll withdraw the plan because it’s against federal law.
House Majority Leader Mike Moyle of Star tells The Spokesman-Review in a story on Wednesday that he’ll try again next year.
Moyle’s bill would have put Idaho on daylight saving time all year.
Ray Harwood reports on time zone issues and opposes seasonal time changes.
He tells the newspaper that federal law allows states two options — sticking with standard time year-round or changing to daylight saving time in March.
Moyle tried last year to put Idaho permanently on standard time but that bill failed.
