Daylight Savings Time ends Sunday, may become permanent next fall

This may be the last time you have to “fall back” to standard time this weekend, as Daylight Savings Time ends at 2 a.m. on Sunday. Last March, the U.S. Senate unanimously approved the Sunshine Protection Act by a voice vote. That legislation would make daylight savings time permanent, beginning in November 2023. As of yet, the U.S. House of Representatives has not taken any action, and the bill would still need to be signed into law by President Joe Biden. Daylight Savings Time was first started in the United States in 1918 to conserve energy during World War 1. Florida Senator Marco Rubio suggested that the Sunshine Protection Act would reduce crime and encourage kids to play outside when he introduced the bill on the Senate floor. Daylight Savings Time traditionally starts on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November.
