Lawmakers push to keep Tennessee on Daylight Saving Time year-round

Scot Gow works on clocks at Electric Time Company in Medfield

But the law may change.

"Daylight Saving Time - or DST - also stands for Daylight Sunshine Time, providing welcome extra hours of sun after a cold winter", the Democrat from MA said in a statement. Multiple initiatives in Congress and in statehouses would terminate our current system of time toggling - a system that started a century ago and has been controversial ever since.

You can use Daylight Savings as an excuse for being late for the next week.

It's time to abide by the old adage to spring forward - though it's not spring yet - and switch to daylight saving time.

So, are you moving your clock one hour forward or backward on Sunday?

Just in the United States this year, there are more than 60 bills percolating in 30-plus states to try to fix this pesky issue.

Lawmakers in several states have filed legislation to do away with falling back.

When nightly sleep gets messed up, it can cause just about anyone to feel irritable, sleepy, and/or hungry.

In a statement, the two men described the move as part of a larger effort to make the Korean peninsula free from nuclear weapons. Both the launch pad and engine test stand were in about the same condition since last August, according to the 38 North report.

The switch to Daylight Saving Time can increase the risk of driver fatigue and crashes, but there are a number of ways to reduce the danger, an expert says. Mornings will now be darker.

Daylight Saving Time (DST) first became popular during World War I as a way to save energy, and America adopted the practice year-round during World War II. US Senators Marco Rubio and Rick Scott are hopeful, however, that this will be the last time it's done in Florida, per a report by ABC Action News.

California voters overwhelmingly approved a similar proposition in November. The patchwork of DST rules that varied from town to town and state to state was brought together in the Uniform Time Act of 1966, according to CNN.

The three states and B.C. have too much binding us together for one or two to go off on their own, he said.

Business interests have long supported the later daylight, he said. After all, it results in an extra hour of sleep later in the year. You should be testing those alarms once a month. Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands don't have to deal with the confusion of their clocks changing time, and others may soon follow.

Who invented Daylight Saving Time?

"The spring time changes is especially difficult for teenagers, who struggle to get up early for school and have a hard time advancing their sleep schedule to an earlier time".

Standard time returns November 3.
