Get rid of DST in Michigan?

A proposal has surfaced in Lansing to remove Michigan from Daylight Savings Time.  State House Democrat Jeff Irwin of Ann Arbor says D-S-T has worn out its welcome, noting that after time changes in March, traffic and workplace injuries have gone up, presumably due in part to the loss of sleep over the time change weekend. He says it originally worked to save energy when it was first devised, during World War I, but today it’s no longer needed. Changing Michigan’s status can be done simply through legislative approval and a signature from the governor.  (MRN)
