MT Senate votes 34–16 to repeal daylight saving time

Ten Democrats and 24 Republicans voted for SB-206, Sen. Ryan Osmundson’s bill to repeal daylight saving time in Montana, on the bill’s second reading in the Senate today. Eight Democrats and eight Republicans voted against the bill.

The Flathead’s delegation split three-to-two for the bill, with only Senators Blasdel and Regier having the wisdom and courage to oppose this outrageous attempt to steal the evening sunlight from people who work by the clock.
