Finally, it looks like members of Congress on both sides of the aisle have been able to come together and put forward a piece of legislation known as the sunshine protection act. What this motion does is it calls for a permanent end to Daylight Saving Time just as many other states have already done themselves.

According to a press release by Senator Rubio, Florida already passed a measure in 2018 that would allow the state to keep Daylight Saving Time, however, federal law is still needed in order for the Sunshine State to hold onto the change.

“The call to end the antiquated practice of clock changing is gaining momentum throughout the nation,” Rubio said. “Studies have shown many benefits of a year-round Daylight Saving Time, which is why the Florida legislature voted to make it permanent in 2018. I’m proud to reintroduce this bipartisan bill to make Daylight Saving Time permanent, and give our nation’s families more stability throughout the year.”

Fifteen additional states have passed similar legislation, resolutions, or voter initiatives, including Arkansas, Alabama, California, Delaware, Georgia, Idaho, Louisiana, Maine, Ohio, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. The press release adds that dozens more states are looking at it, as well.
