CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - A bill proposed Thursday in the West Virginia Senate could mean no more springing forward and falling back in the Mountain State.

Sen.Sue Cline, R- Wyoming County, proposed the bill, which was referred to the Judiciary Committee.

Proponents of Senate Bill 486 said they think it is a great idea because they dislike how it gets dark so early in the fall.

Those against it said it would get very confusing when neighboring states such as Kentucky and Ohio fall back and but West Virginia does not.

Currently, two states, Arizona and Hawaii, do not follow Daylight Saving Time.

The bill has not been voted on yet.
