Some lawmakers want to end the annual shift to daylight saving time and put Washington on standard time year around.

A hearing on the bill is scheduled Tuesday before the House Committee on State Government in Olympia.

The bill is sponsored by Rep. Elizabeth Scott of Monroe.

Currently, Washington shifts to daylight saving time from the second Sunday in March through the first Sunday in November to extend daylight in the evenings. The rest of the year Washington is on standard time in the Pacific zone.
