NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- When Tennesseans spring forward into daylight saving time next month, they will never fall back into standard time again if a proposed bill passes in the state legislature.
Under the bill, sponsored by Representative Curry Todd of Collierville, Tennessee will drop out of the ritual of moving clocks forward an hour each year on the second Sunday in March and then back again on the first Sunday in November.
Arizona, Hawaii and Indiana have successfully adopted a uniform time system with no changes by season.
If the bill passes, the change in Tennessee would take effect this coming July.
East Tennessee would remain one hour ahead of the rest of the state.
