(SitNews) Juneau, Alaska - Tuesday, members of the Alaska Senate State Affairs Committee moved Senate Bill 6 out of committee, which would repeal daylight saving time in Alaska. SB6, sponsored by Senator Anna MacKinnon (R-Eagle River), would allow Alaska to stay on standard time throughout the year.

“I introduced this bill after hearing a number of concerns from constituents, fellow Alaskans, and various groups that would like to repeal daylight saving time in Alaska and I would like to hear from more Alaskans around the state,” said Senator MacKinnon.

Alaskans are being asked to complete an online survey expressing their opinions on daylight saving time.

Senator MacKinnon created this online survey to learn what other Alaskans think about repealing daylight saving time.
