New York Could Be Getting Rid Of Daylight Saving Time
I'm really bad at remembering Daylight Saving Time. It's something I don't think about until all my clocks suddenly change when I'm asleep, and then I'm just confused all day. Are we an hour ahead or an hour behind? Does time travel exist? WHAT YEAR IS IT?
It seems like I'm not the only one who gets confused. Senator Marco Rubio is proposing a bill that would keep the nation in standard time all year long. (Presumably, he thought of this after his alarm clock went off at the wrong time and he was late to work, and had to rush in without even brushing his teeth).
The bill is called the "Sunshine Protection Act," which would make daylight saving time permanent across the country. He has also proposed the "Sunshine State Act," which does the same thing but only for his home state of Florida. Rubio believes that keeping daylight saving time year-round will benefit the economy.
So what do you think? Should we do away with Daylight Saving Time, or should we keep things the way they are?
