Republican representative Jim Nielson’s draft bill, “Elimination of Daylight Saving Time”, failed to move forward for further voting.

A “serious” bill

Nielson reportedly expressed to the committee that his draft bill was a serious one, not a publicity stunt nor a “message” bill. His comment was in response to some media reports questioning the seriousness of the bill.
