Mountain Daylight Time bill fails in the Senate

(Dan Cepeda, Oil City)

A bill that would have Wyoming stop recognizing daylight savings time changes failed on first reading in the Senate Thursday, Feb. 14.

The House passed the measure on Jan. 28 and sent it over to the Senate. The Senate Agriculture Committee passed a recommendation of the bill before it failed on Thursday.

The vote was a 15 to 15 on first reading in the Senate. It required a majority to pass. A reconsideration motion also failed 15 to 15.

Oil City previously covered the bill, that story can be seen here.
