Buchanan and Rubio Push to End Daylight Savings

CloseBack to Article Back to Article Daylight Savings Time to begin Sunday

During the 2018 midterm elections in California, 59.75% of voters said "Yes" on Proposition 7, which would all the state legislature to change the date and time of DST as consistent with federal law with a two-thirds vote. Newspapers published instructions on how and when to set clocks forward, and churches posted signs out front warning parishioners. In the United States, where it is practised everywhere except in Hawaii and most of Arizona, it starts this year on March 10 and ends on November 3, when clocks will be set back to the original times.

Existing federal law requires the entire state of New Mexico to advance one hour in March through a period know as daylight saving time.

The analysis indicates people who already have trouble sleeping, such as children and the elderly, may have more trouble adjusting after the time change.

"Daylight saving time makes it easier for folks to do stuff around the farm, particularly with another hour in the evening". But every year when daylight saving time rolls around, you're probably reminded that it doesn't feel so great. This change in daylight saving time observance was requested by local governments and political leaders to help facilitate commerce with the US. Well, everyone except Hawaii, Arizona, Guam, Puerto Rico, American Samoa and the Virgin Islands since those areas do not observe DST.

US Sen. Sherrod Brown decides against a 2020 presidential run
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced he would not join an already crowded Democratic field, as did Oregon Sen. Brown's decision not to run for president in 2020 comes on the heels of some others who were thought to be contenders.

In the Central time zone, in cities such as Chicago, Dallas and New Orleans, the difference is eight hours, instead of nine. That's imprecise speech. Also, while we're at it: daylight saving time does not really save daylight.

Daylight saving time began in 1918 but the rules around it changed in most recently in 2007. You'll gain it back in November when the clocks go back. A New Jersey congressman who supported it told people to think of the veterans coming home from the war, "Are they not deserving of the extra hour of recreation?"

Why Do We Have Daylight Saving Time? . "And if people do not respect that at some point in time, they will pay the price".

Riccelli is referring to a bill filed last week by U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida that would make year round daylight saving time the national standard. While it can only go into effect if the US Congress makes that possible, the Sunshine State has certainly advanced the debate and inspired other states.
