Daylight Spending Time? Candy Lobby groups making our jobs harder?

"DST doesn’t really save any energy. It makes us spend more money, and requires us to buy more candy for Halloween. Now, kids will trick-or-treat on daylight time and the candy companies are thrilled. Candy Lobby groups of all things have been hitting our Senetors hard since 1985 for this to happen. Is this what we have come to?"

Seriously, should we still allow these lobby groups to make bad policy like this? Our company alone spent a couple weeks, hundreds of man hours, and perhaps thousands of dollars in lost productivity to make sure all our network servers, workstations and various appliances were all up to date.

All I am going to say is that we need more transparency in laws which get signed. We should expect to know who originally requested the legislation and where the money is which is funding the research and moving the bill through Congress.
