Saving Time

Something we can all get behind.

WASHINGTON – You soon may be able to skip the semiannual switching of your clocks for daylight saving time.

The Senate Tuesday unanimously passed the Sunshine Protection Act, which would permanently extend daylight saving time (DST) from eight months of the year to the full 12 months. The bill was first introduced in January 2021 and reintroduced by Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, and seven other bipartisan members of Congress last March.

Rubio on Tuesday targeted the “ritual of changing the clock back and forth, and the disruption that comes with it.”

    I don’t really care either way on this one…. I’ve never been affected by it in the spring or in the fall. The only time I’ve been affected by time changes is coming back from 3 weeks in Asia. Around 2PM every day for a month it was like a light switch was turned off and I couldn’t function without a nap.

    So, why is not the States decision?
    I guess the Senate has nothing better to do.

    Wouldn’t it be ironic if this passes and then Arizona starts doing Daylight Savings.
