PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A bill that would reject daylight saving time in South Dakota and make it permanently standard time is set to go before a legislative committee.

The House State Affairs committee is scheduled to take up the bill on Wednesday.

A proposal to make it permanently daylight saving time in South Dakota failed last month in the state Senate.

Republican Sen. Betty Olson has been a main backer of both proposals.

Olson has said she brought the Senate bill forward because she and many of her neighbors are sick of switching clocks and having to adjust to the change.
