MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - If state Sen. Rusty Glover has his way, Sunday will be the last time Alabama residents turn back the clock one hour to standard time.

The Republican legislator from Semmes has no opposition in Tuesday's general election, and he is already making plans to introduce a daylight saving bill in the 2015 legislative session. It would keep Alabama on daylight saving time year-round once people make the switch in March 2015. 

Glover says people always complain when the state returns to Central Standard Time because they get home from work in the dark and their children get home from school and sports activities in the dark.

A similar bill was introduced in the House last spring. It won approval from a House committee, but went no farther.
