Paul Bettencourt of Houston has filed a joint resolution calling for Texans to vote on the elimination of Daylight Saving Time.
“The issue of Daylight Saving Time has roused passions on both sides of the debate for over 100 years,” Bettencourt said in a statement. “Giving Texans the opportunity to vote on the issue will settle the debate once and for all in the Lone Star State.”
