Time to get rid of Daylight Saving Time? Some states are trying to do just that

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Here are yet again just days away from setting our clocks forward 1 hour, thus losing an hour of precious sleep.

"Spring forward," or the beginning of daylight saving time, occurs next weekend on March 8th.

That's when your phones, tablets and laptops will automatically adjust to the time change by fast forwarding from 2 a.m. to 3 a.m. 

If you have any clocks that don't automatically change, you should set them forward 1 hour before heading to bed Saturday night.

But is this something that should just come to an end? That's a widely debated topic nationwide. Several states are attempting to do away with the whole time change thing.

States like Kentucky, West Virginia and Utah have proposed -- or are in the process of proposing -- legislature to abolish changing the clocks twice every year.

Arizona and Hawaii are currently the only states that do not participate in springing forward and falling back. 

So what do you think? Should Indiana and Michigan try to get rid of standard time and remain in daylight saving time year-round?
