A bill that would keep Wyoming on Mountain Standard Time year-round has been filed in the Wyoming Legislature.

The bill follows action by the 2020 Legislature that would keep Wyoming on Mountain Daylight Time all year if three surrounding states do the same. But the latest bill, while still eliminating the twice a year time change, would have two key differences from last year's legislation.

First of all, it would allow Wyoming to act on its own, regardless of what any surrounding states do or don't do. The other key difference is that it would keep the state on Mountain Standard Time (the time the state follows during the winter months) rather than Mountain Daylight time.

House Bill 71 is sponsored by Representative(s) Bear, Burt, Fortner, Neiman and Ottman, and Senator(s) McKeown.
