Looks like they scrapped the time zone change. Sanity prevailed for once.

    So they were/are putting up a bill to put us on daylight savings time all year?

    This was the bill to include the panhandle of Florida in the eastern time zone so all of the state would be the same in that regard

    @mustang190 are you far from Brewton AL?

    Exactly. A solution in search of a problem. There is no problem. I'm not a fan of DST, but rolling Northwest FL into the eastern time zone without asking people who live there is just flat out stupid.

    People use statistics the way a drunk uses a street light, for support rather than illumination.

    I always wondered the reason behind the time zone line from below Blountstown to the coast.

    I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you

    I’m in Panama City. Not sure where Brewton is? Near Dothan?

    In Florida history class I remember it had to do with the railroad (they set the time zones) since port St. Joe was the biggest port and railhead and most of their goods and trade was to Atlanta and Jacksonville.

    Another useless bill by another legislator trying to legitimize himself.

    I may be entitled to compensation.

    I know if you're at our place on Cape San Blas you better turn your phone to either Eastern or Central or it'll burn your battery completely down in 1 hour switching back and forth.

    Agree. The phone is off when I'm on the boat when I'm sitting at the house it's on.

    Yawn....

    Arguing with idiots is like playing chess with a pigeon... No matter how good you are, the bird is going to crap on the board and strut around like it won anyway. nj
