Senate agrees on permanent daylight saving time


Posted 1:14 am, 03/22/2022

So far the House hasn't even considered it yet, and it's not clear if they ever will. Both Republicans and Democrats in House have stated that it's not important, and really just a distraction from things that are important.

"I'm really thinking about dying people and I'm thinking about what's going on in Ukraine. We just had the president here. I don't give a **** about what people think about it," Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said Wednesday, referring to the Senate-passed proposal.

"To be candid, it's not been on my radar. We got other things that have been more front and center," House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) told The Hill on Wednesday afternoon, adding lawmakers remain "focused on Ukraine," following Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky's recent address to Congress.

73% want it stopped, Now is the best chance we have had, but if it can be messed up, you got the one in office that can do it.

I don't see why it needs to be changed. It's not a big deal. If having changing time zones is so stressful, then let's do it right and eliminate all time zones around the world. One world, One Time. One Currency, One Nation-State. It all makes sense now...

Why DST? when the time zones were established the criteria was the position of the sun, why not do away with DST and stick with the original chronology?

Just two days after the nation's latest stressful "spring forward" to the later sunsets of daylight saving time, the Senate unanimously and surprisingly passed Sen. Marco Rubio's (R-Fla.) bill to lock the clocks. The quick and consequential move happened so fast that several senators said afterward they were unaware of what had just happened.


Congress tried a permanent daylight saving time in the 1970s, but quickly reversed course on the move amid widespread public outcry over the switch.


The latest attempted switch will only get to President Joe Biden's desk to become law if the House acts on the measure, and that chamber's plans remain unclear.
