CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming residents could be saving daylight all year if one lawmaker's plan makes it through the Legislature.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/2iay9Pj ) that Rep. Dan Laursen, of Powell, is proposing the state eliminate standard time, which runs from November to March.

Laursen says moving clocks back and forth an hour can be hard on students and the elderly. He also says he has a hard time remembering how to keep all the times straight.

Last year, Laursen proposed the state eliminate daylight saving time and instead operate on standard time all year but he faced opposition. He says he hopes the inverse proposal will get more support.
