Some possible good news if you’re sick of changing your clocks twice a year.
The U.S. Senate has approved a bill that would make Daylight Saving Time permanent.
Called the Sunshine Protection Act, the bill would mean an extra hour of daylight in the evening year-round. This means that those getting up early would have to deal with darker skies every morning.
According to Senator Marco Rubio, extending Daylight Saving Time would carry benefits ranging from better health to reduced crime to fewer car accidents.
The bill isn’t quite official. The House and President Biden still need to give their approval. If passed, it would go into effect on Nov. 20th, 2023.
Senate passes bill by unanimous consent to make Daylight Saving Time permanent.
