LANSING -- One state lawmaker is wasting no time this new year trying to end daylight saving time in Michigan.

The house bill was introduced by Rep. Peter Lucido, R-Shelby Township, and referred to the Committee on Commerce and Trade.

similar measure was introduced two years ago, but was not successful.

Currently, most of Arizona and Hawaii do not observe daylight saving time -- while other states have considered ending daylight saving time, including Alaska, Missouri and Texas.

Daylight saving time starts on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November.
