Abstract

Arguments for why Maine should either stay on Eastern Daylight Time year round, or change to Atlantic Standard Time in order to extend the daylight hours in the winter are revisited. A 1973 proposal to keep Maine on Eastern Savings Time failed as the U.S. Department of Transportation prohibits states from adopting Daylight Savings time year round. State Representative Kevin Glenn introduced a bill in 2005 to put Maine on Atlantic Standard Time, which was defeated 73-66.
