  • No fair: Florida is trying to opt out of Daylight Saving Time clock changes

Florida could stay brighter longer each fall and winter under a bill passed by state lawmakers there.

Standard Time will soon give way to Daylight Saving Time. Congress would need to amend existing federal law to allow the change if Scott signs the "Sunshine Protection Act".

Consider that the most influential force in putting Daylight Saving Time in place in 1966 was a business lobby, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Hawaii: The state was one of first to opt out of the Uniform Time Act in 1967, per Time magazine.

Unless, you're a farmer from 1908, chances are you don't have much use for daylight savings time. Hawaii, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, and the United States Virgin Islands have all sought and received exemptions.

It's nearly time to lose an hour of our lives that we'll never get back.

In the United States, daylight saving time began on March 21, 1918.

Daylight saving time was used on and off during World Wars I and II as part of efforts to save fuel.

"It's going to be more hard for people to wake up", Rodriguez said of the days immediately after Daylight Saving starts. And a study that same year from the University of California-Santa Barbara found it might even increase energy consumption.

For most Arizonans, it means we'll be on the same time as states west of us, three hours behind the East Coast.

By the way, Daylight Saving Time will end and we will return to Standard Time on Sunday, Nov. 4, 2018. Czeisler said that heart attack risk goes up 5 percent and motor vehicle crashes go up 17 percent immediately after Daylight Saving Time starts. A search on Change.org returns 1,466 petitions mentioning daylight saving time, most of which appear to support abolishing it. If you're feeling sleepy, short afternoon naps are recommended for a few days after the time change until the body adjusts.
