Daylight Saving Time in Wyoming

Mar 8, 2020

Happy Daylight Saving Time Sunday! As you drink your third cup of coffee and try to pry your eyes open after setting your clock forward one hour this morning, know that it didn’t have to be this way!

In 1967, the year after Daylight Saving Time was enacted nationally, the Wyoming Legislature considered HB0228 to preserve Standard Time. Not only that, but an amendment called for highway signs proclaiming that “Individualist Wyoming” would set its clocks as it see fit. See the bill and find more historic documents in the Wyoming Legislation Database.

Last we checked on Friday, this year’s legislature is still considering HB0044 to make the clocks stay still year-round — this time to preserve Daylight Time. Track all of this year’s bills on the Wyoming State Legislature’s website.
