The state of Utah is taking public comment on the impact of daylight savings. The findings will be presented to the legislature in September or October to be decided on next year. The question is whether or not Utah changes its time system and if so, how. There are three options as to what the state can do.
1. Utah can remain on the daylight savings system it is now (the “spring forward” and “fall back”).
2. Utah can align with Arizona at a permanent “fall back” schedule. This would mean that in the summer the sun would rise at about 4:30 a.m. and set at 8 p.m.
3. Utah can be unique from everywhere else in the country and permanently be on a “spring forward” schedule. This would add about half an hour of darkness on each end of the day during winter.
