Sounds like half the state wants to be on Illinois time and the other half on Ohio, eastern time.

The state seems rather split 50/50.

This may not be a problem elsewhere where time zone borders are much less populated. Much of the central to mountain time zone split is sparsly populated. Same from mountain to pacific. But eastern to central is most populated in Indiana.

Actually the split east to east is fairly even. The true population split in North to South.

The time zone line at one time went down US 31 which splits the state in half. That's the overall problem, because we straddle the division line, half want to go central and half want to go East. In one version of the bill, those counties on boarders could stay with central time if so desired. I don't know if that stayed with this version.

Gov Daniels now wants to get the federal government to reexamine where the time-zone lines are drawn. He believes they need to be readjusted.
