It’s that time of year… daylight savings time. Here we go again! The movement to stay on DST year round continues to grow. Federal law must change in order for states to stay on a uniform time year round. I also heard that it would need to be a regional change. For example, all of New England or all of the Great Lakes states would need to agree to change. What about Hawaii and Arizona? They never change their clocks to daylight savings time. Indiana is in 2 time zones. This could get interesting, but We the People don’t care. We seem to want more daylight later in the day every day. What about kids getting on the bus in the morning? Yeah, even that doesn’t seem to matter to parents as much as it used to. Some Americans see darkness descend around 3:45p.m. in the winter. We get up in the dark and come home from work in the dark. As a result, more Americans want to seize the day(light).
What do you say? Change the time from standard time to daylight savings every year? Or change to daylight savings permanently? Click on the “Join Us” button below and see what others are saying on my Common Sense Civics and Citizenship Facebook educational page. ??
