ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) - A New Mexico lawmaker says he plans to reintroduce legislation that would allow the state to maintain the same time all year.

Sen. Cliff Pirtle announced at a legislative luncheon last week that he will bring up the measure that would keep New Mexico on Mountain Daylight Saving Time throughout the year.

The Republican farmer from Roswell told the Roswell Daily Record (https://bit.ly/1T6OXPK) that he may put the bill in the form of a joint resolution.

He says a joint resolution would allow the measure to bypass Gov. Susana Martinez and go to the U.S. Department of Transportation.

The measure would then go back to the state and be discussed in public forums.

The Senate approved of Pirtle’s bill in March but it died while before a House committee.
