NEW MEXICO (KSMX) – Daylight Saving Time, All Time is gaining momentum in the State House. Longtime sponsor of the bill, Senator Cliff Pirtle of Roswell, says its time to end the confusion and hassle of switching the clocks twice a year. Although the bill has not passed legislation far enough to reach the Gov. in the four years it’s been presented, with similar legislation now passed in California and Florida, the New Mexico bill is gaining steam. Senator Pirtle’s SB 226 would keep New Mexico on what is Mountain Daylight Saving Time throughout the entire year. The Federal government allows states and territories to exempt themselves from changing their clocks as Arizona and Hawaii as well as the territories of Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Guam and American Samoa have done.
