Time could be running out for Daylight Saving Time

There was a time in Indiana where Daylight Saving Time was something that wasn’t observed, and Hawaii and much of Arizona still don’t adjust their clocks twice per year.

In 2006, Hoosiers began moving their clocks forward and back each year. Now, the entire country might be doing away with the practice.

Tuesday, the U.S. Senate voted unanimously to approve The Sunshine Protection Act, a bill that would end the time change from DST to standard time.

The bill still needs to be approved by the U.S. House before it can be signed into law, and if it is, the change would not take place until November of 2023.

A recent poll shows most Americans are in favor of doing away with the practice, but are divided about which time should be used all year.

This is the first sensible thing out of Congress in a long while.

Leaving us on DST all year gives an extra hour of daylight after work. I will gladly drive into work in the dark to have an extra hour outside when I get home.
