WRAY, Colo. (CBS4)- Colorado state lawmaker Greg Brophy says his constituents are tired of setting their clocks ahead and back each year.

The Republican senator from Wray is bringing the issue back to the table once the 2013 Legislative session begins in January 2013.

“It causes traffic accidents and it messes up everybody’s biological clocks and makes everybody that I know grouchy for about a week,” said Brophy. “Instead we’d stay on a single, solitary time year round.”

If state lawmakers approve the measure it will go to the voters in 2014.

If voters approve the proposal to keep Colorado under Daylight Saving Time all year, it would go into effect in March 2015.

A similar plan died last year after the ski industry made a strong argument about how the extra daylight in the morning is crucial to business.
