Rep. Rick Tillis, R-Lewisburg, said there are many reasons to make a change, and he's finding support.

"I've done a couple of polls and both have run right around 89 percent to stop changing the clocks, stay on Daylight Saving Time year-round," Tillis said.

Tillis said he has contacted bordering states where several legislators are discussing similar measures.
