BOSTON — Massachusetts inhabitants would not have to reset their clocks through the darkest months of the year under an concept currently being analyzed on Beacon Hill.
On Wednesday, an 11-member commission will begin weighing the economic and health and fitness impacts of the state remaining on Japanese Daylight Time year-round.
Massachusetts stays on Japanese Daylight Time a great deal of the year, but shifts to Japanese Typical Time on the initial Sunday in November by setting clocks back again an hour.
The state returns to Japanese Daylight Time on the second Sunday of March, when clocks leap forward an hour.
Critics say the change makes the days appear even shorter, with the sun setting just before five p.m. through a great deal of November, December and January.
Supporters say ending the change will create darker mornings when learners are heading to university.
