Congress: End the Time Change - Choose one Standard Time and Stay With it Year Round!

It's time for Congress to pick one time that is standard throughout the year!

Multiple health risks have been cited in scientific literature during the “Spring Forward” including car accidents, heart attacks and workplace injuries. 

Since Daylight Saving Time was enacted to conserve coal during WWI, its role currently is obsolete in terms of energy saving measures.

Moreover most of the country has introduced some form of legislation in regards to ending the time change.

Last year California passed Proposition 7, making Daylight Saving Time year-round and permanent.  Other states who have proposed legislation include the following:

Alaska
Alabama
Arkansas
Colorado
Delaware
Georgia
Idaho
Illinois
Indiana
Iowa
Kansas
Louisiana
Maine
Michigan
Minnesota
Mississippi
Missouri
Montana
Nevada
New Jersey
New Mexico
New York
North Carolina
North Dakota
Ohio
Oklahoma
Oregon
Pennsylvania
South Carolina
Tennessee
Texas
Utah
Vermont
Virginia
Washington
West Virginia
Wyoming

 


Some states had put forth legislation to be on Atlantic Standard Time, a time zone one hour ahead of Eastern Standard Time that essentially puts them on year-round Daylight Saving Time.  These include Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

So why put the country through time changes twice a year?  Whether you're #SickOfSpringForward or #FinishedWithFallBack, it's time Congress puts an end to Daylight Saving Time changes and keep one time throughout the year!
