Most areas of the United States observe daylight saving time. Arizona, Hawaii, and the overseas territories of American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the United States Virgin Islands do not.
There are bills to bring the constant changing of the clocks to a stop, one way or the other, in almost every state in America.
California and Florida both voted in 2018 to enact Daylight Saving Time as their year round time. The only issue with this vote, it must be approved by the US Congress and to date, has not been. If a state elects to do away with Daylight Saving Time, they can make the change without a federal congressional approval.
Listed are the states wanting to stop changing the clocks 2 times a year. Alaska, Colorado, Indiana, Vermont, New Hampshire, Wyoming, N. Dakota, Nebraska, and Oklahoma. New Mexico, Montana, Idaho, Utah, Texas, Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee, West Virginia, New York, Maine, Massachusetts, and Maryland. Minnesota, Washington, South Carolina, Oregon, and Mississippi.
It seems obvious it is time for a change! (Pun intended!)
