Rep. Jackie Walorski submitted an entry (PDF) to the USDOT docket. For starters, her letter to the USDOT was very confusing to me, in that the letter head gave a return address of Marion, Indiana. That must just be a typo of some sort because her web page gives the same street address but with the city address of Lakeville, IN. She makes the standard argument that the economies of Elkhart and St. Joseph Counties are intertwined, then jumps to the conclusion that this mandates Eastern Time for St. Joseph County. But, once again, there is no explanation for why, instead, Elkhart County shouldn’t be working hard to get its petition for Central Time on file.
