Indiana was shifted from its correct Central Time Zone to Eastern in the mid-1960s. However, the state did not experience a sunlight schedule change until 2006, when Eastern Daylight Saving Time was adopted. Two resolutions in the General Assembly (HCR 2 and SCR 11) call for an examination of the effect of Eastern's sunlight schedule on the well-being of Hoosiers.
Why is this important?
Being in the same time zone as New York is no longer important or even valid. In the meantime, statistics show that our current sunlight schedule is adversely affecting the well-being of Hoosiers:
More than 28,000 Hoosiers and 51 public school boards have signed petitions to restore Indiana to its correct Central Time Zone. What would some of the major impacts be?
Central Time is Indiana's correct time. It's a no-brainer.
