An effort to exempt Tennessee from daylight savings time has failed by one vote in the state House. The House State Government Committee voted this week 6-5 against the measure. Several lawmakers from the Eastern Time zone raised concerns that the measure would have caused their region’s time to be mismatched with neighboring states like Virginia, North Carolina and Georgia during part of the year.
The bill was amended to exempt East Tennessee from the bill, which caused other lawmakers to raise concerns about possible confusion over only part of the state adhering to daylight saving time.
So, on November 2, 2014, you will set your clocks back by one hour.
