Updated February 12, 2020 10:17:36 Alaska time zone change could be delayed further, as the state considers an appeal to the Supreme Court.
Key points:Alaska’s Supreme Court said it would not rule on the state’s appeal to challenge the change until 2019In a filing in Alaska’s case, the Alaska Department of Natural Resources said it could have an impact on Alaska time zonesA federal judge has agreed to hear the state claimThe state of Alaska will appeal to a federal judge on March 28 to overturn the state Supreme Court’s decision.
In a motion filed on Tuesday, the state said it was “considering an appeal” to the U.S. Supreme Court to have the Supreme Judicial Court consider the issue.
Alaska officials said it had not been informed of the court’s decision, but it said the state was “prepared to pursue a timely appeal of the Alaska Supreme Court decision.”
The Alaska Supreme Judicial court has been in session since March, when the court heard arguments in the state government’s lawsuit against the federal government over the state changing the date of the new year.
The state says it changed the time zones of the state because the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) had decided to change their dates to coincide with the winter solstice.
The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments in October, and Alaska’s lawyers have argued that the state has not been told of the Supreme court’s order.
Alaskans are concerned about the change in time zones and are worried that the change could affect their ability to work, travel and live in Alaska, according to Alaska Governor Bill Walker.
The U.A.E. is seeking to change the time zone from the current UTC of +1:00am to UTC+11:00pm.
This would allow for more daylight hours and allow for better weather conditions, according the U,A.G.
