DST Passes in Late Senate Vote

This could be historic. SB127 which would require Indiana to observe Daylight Savings Time passed the Indiana Senate earlier this evening. With two days to spare in the session, the bill heads back to the House for a final vote. (It's passed the house once but has been amended in committee.) As it stands, the bill would call for all countries in Eastern Standard Time (which is all but 5 counties in Indiana) to observe DST starting next April. (5 counties in eastern Indiana already observe DST on their own.) The counties in the Central time zone would remain as is. It's a pretty safe bet Gov. Daniels will sign this one if it passes the house. No champagne yet, but it's certainly only a step away. More from the Indy Star.
