In the US, almost all states have a switch from Standard time to Daylight Savings time. This creates a problem for northern states, because we continue to operate as a society at the same times, but the "theoretical times" adjust without accounting for this. Massachusetts, as well as all other states in the Northeast, is too far east to be accurately represented by its current timezone and should be change to the Atlantic timezone permanently. Not to mention, most people tend to wake up after the sun rises during Daylight Savings and Standard time, and if the sun sets an hour earlier, then people miss out on an hour of sunlight. The change from Daylight Savings to Standard has been shown to have a correlation with an increase in depression.

Charlie Baker has the ability to instate this rule, and by signing this petition, you will be showing to him as well as the rest of the Massachusetts government that this is not something that should be ignored any longer. It is a simple change that should have been made long ago, and it is time to make it.
