Finally! DST Bill Passes House

In a tense, late vote, SB 127 passed the Indiana House by a narrow vote -- 51-49 -- with the two votes needed by state Republicans. After a dramatic day and a one vote loss where the legislation failed by not by a Constitutional majority, lawmakers spent the afternoon caucasing and brought the bill back for a vote at 11:30 p.m. last night. With one day left in the legislative session, the DST bill has stirred emotional debate on either side. Lots of drama and possibly some seats lost over it. More in the Indy Star. We'll join the country in setting our clocks forward in April (or earlier, if the federal government moves it) 2006. Gov. Daniels is, of course, expected to sign this bill.
