Would You Vote to Stay in Daylight Saving Time Forever?

Lawmakers in Florida Just Did

March 8, 2018

Daylight Saving Time is set to start this weekend, and it's got a lot of people thinking about whether or not it should just become the new normal--meaning no "falling back" (setting clocks back) in early November.

This week, lawmakers in Florida voted to allow the state to remain in Daylight Saving Time in perpetuity. The "Sunshine Protection Act" heads to Governor Rick Scott's desk after the state senate voted in favor of it 33-2 on Tuesday.

The law would allow Florida to opt out of setting clocks back one hour in the fall, giving the state more sunshine during winter evenings. The deal's not done yet, though: Not only has Scott given no indication as to whether he'll sign the bill, but the U.S. Congress would need to pass its own federal law allowing Florida to opt out of "falling back."

The only states currently exempt from the Uniform Time Act of 1966 are Arizona and Hawaii.

How would you feel about staying in Daylight Saving Time permanently?  (Mark me down for a big YES!)
