CHATTANOOGA, TN (WDEF-TV) If Tennessee completes all steps to drop out of Daylight-Saving Time, it may make the lives of some Chattanoogans miserable.

A Tennessee Representative, Curry Todd is the sponsor of this bill. It has already cleared the first step.

This piece of legislation would make the state’s hour of daylight gained permanent. Some feel that wouldn’t be very beneficial.

Jonathon Wooten lives in Tennessee but lives in Georgia but already has some confusion about this situation.

“It’s going to be very confusing,” Wooten said. “Knowing that it’s 8 o’clock at home but ten my kids go to school in Georgia so I have to adjust time. I’m going to need a calculator just to calculate everything.”

Three other states have already opted out of the Daylight-Saving Time, Arizona, Hawaii, and Indiana, but there are more that are trying to push legislation.
