Why did indiana go to daylight savings time?

The Indiana General Assembly passed a law to make Central Time the state's official time zone in 1957, but allowed any community to switch to daylight saving time during the summer. However, the law made it illegal for communities to observe fast time (that is, currently, all states except Hawaii and Arizona observe daylight saving time), even though legislation against it is enacted nationwide. Nineteen states, not including Indiana or Kentucky, are pushing for daylight saving time throughout the year, arguing that it would reduce sleep disturbances and traffic accidents.
