Topic: Florida seeks to go year-round on daylight saving time
We hear about daylight saving time twice a year. On March 11, 2018, we set clocks ahead one hour. On the first Sunday in November, we move them back an hour. Florida doesnt agree with this and wants it to change. Florida lawmakers passed a bill. It is called the “Sunshine Protection Act." It would ask the national government to allow Florida to keep the same time year-round.There are two states who are not following this law. One is Hawaii. It is three time zones away from the West Coast. The other is Arizona. It hoped to make its summer days shorter. Sunrise And Sunset Would Be An Hour Later. The change in Florida would make sunrise and sunset an hour later. For example, on the shortest day of 2017, December 21, sunrise was at 7:04 a.m. Sunset was at 5:34 p.m. Under daylight saving time, sunrise would have been at 8:04 a.m. Sunset would have been 6:34 p.m.
