Lawmakers won't take time

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Arkansans will have to keep adjusting their clocks every fall and spring after lawmakers overwhelmingly rejected an effort to end daylight saving time in the state.

A proposal to adopt year-round standard time failed today in the Arkansas House.

The proposal would have taken effect if one of Arkansas' border states also adopted year-round standard time.

The bill's sponsor argued that daylight saving time hasn't been proven to create any savings from energy costs.
