The Alabama Senate approved a resolution Thursday of this week to make Daylight Saving Time permanent which could bring an end to the tradition of moving clocks ahead one hour in the spring and then back an hour in the fall.
That measure must still be approved by the House and signed by the governor – and even if that takes place, a permanent change would ultimately require Congressional approval – It does appear at least some in Congress are receptive to that idea, as Senator Marco Rubio of Florida has previously introduced legislation supporting the idea. In fact he has introduced two proposals: The Sunshine Protection Act, which would make DST standard around the country, and the Sunshine State Act, granting Florida permission to make the change.
Florida’s Legislature voted earlier this month (March of 2018) to remain on Daylight Saving Time year round.
Unless Congress intervenes Daylight Saving Time is set to end the first Sunday in November and re-start the second Sunday in March.
