Connecticut Lawmaker Wants To Change Halloween's Date

To many of us trick-or-treating on Halloween night is a long-standing tradition.  

But one Connecticut lawmaker wants to turn that idea on its head and move Halloween.  
Instead of having it on October 31st, Representative Tim Larson wants to move it to the last Saturday of the month.  

Larson says it would help families since they won't have to rush after school and work.  
He also says it would be safer for trick-or-treaters to go door to door when it's light out.

Obviously, Larson's change can't be pushed through in time for this Halloween.
But he says he's going to try to make it happen for next year.
