“Darn Sick!”: SD Senator Says No More to Standard Time

A panel has approved a lawmaker’s push to make it permanently daylight saving time in South Dakota because she’s sick of changing her clocks.

State Sen. Betty Olson’s bill says South Dakota “elects to reject standard time.”

Olson says she and many of her neighbors are “darn sick” of switching clocks and having to adjust to the change. Republican State Sen. Brock Greenfield agreed and says “the times have changed”.

There was no testimony opposing the bill which is now headed to the full state senate for a vote.
