Advocates of moving all of Indiana into the Central time zone are trying to restart the time debate in the General Assembly.

Members of the Central Time Coalition visited the Statehouse on Thursday, just ahead of Sunday's daylight saving time clock change. The group maintains that in parts of the state in the Eastern time zone it's often too dark as children head to school.

Coalition leader Sue Dillon said it's a question of safety in the mornings, not whether people can play golf late into the evening, WISH-TV reported.

State lawmakers have been unwilling to consider clock issues since adopting statewide daylight saving time in 2005.

House Speaker Brian Bosma simply said "no" when asked whether there would be any time zone discussion this year.
