The US Senate unanimously approved a bill Make Daylight Saving Time Permanent across the nation. the sun protection law has yet to face the house, but would mean the clocks would no longer need to be changed twice a year – and that the oppressive early afternoon darkness of winter would be over.

the Sun protection bill was reinstated in 2021 by Republican Senator Marco Rubio, who said at the time that “many studies have shown that making DST permanent could benefit the economy and the country.”

the Bipartisan bill is ‘common sense’ according to co-sponsor Democratic Senator Ron Wyden.

“Bouncing forward and falling behind year after year only creates unnecessary confusion and is bad for the health of Americans and our economy,” Wyden said last year. “Permanently switching to daylight saving time would give people back an hour of sunshine during the winter months, when we need it most.”

DST began on Sunday March 13th and currently lasts until Sunday November 6th.
