Statement from state Rep. Scott Dianda (D-Calumet) on news story incorrectly identifying him as a co-sponsor of Daylight Savings Time bill:

Thursday, January 12, 2017

“Yesterday, WZZM and the Detroit Free Press ran news stories identifying me as a co-sponsor of a bill introduced this year to put all of Michigan into the Eastern Time Zone and eliminating Daylight Savings Time in Michigan. That bill is House Bill 4011, sponsored by state Rep. Pete Lucido (R-Shelby Township), and I want to make it clear that I am not a co-sponsor of HB 4011. I am concerned about this bill because of the impact it would have on certain communities in House District 110 that are in the Central Time Zone. Rest assured that I will share information on this bill with the residents of HD 110 should it receive a committee hearing.”
