SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A proposal to study whether Utah should continue to observe daylight saving time is advancing at the Legislature.

A Senate committee voted 4-2 on Wednesday morning to advance the measure to the full Senate for a vote.

Garland Republican Rep. Ronda Menlove is sponsoring the bill, which she says gives those with opinions about the practice an opportunity to voice their concerns or support.

Menlove says proposals to stop observing daylight saving time have been unsuccessfully introduced at the Legislature many times. She says a public meeting will allow anyone frustrated with that to make their case.

The proposal also requires the governor's economic development office to make a recommendation about any future action on daylight savings.
