Since Daylight Saving Time was enacted to conserve coal during WWI, its role currently is obsolete in terms of energy saving measures.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