Hopefully you remembered to turn your clocks ahead one hour over the weekend for Daylight Saving Time.
On Saturday, the Washington House passed a bill that would make the state allow for the year-round observation of daylight saving time.
House Bill 1196 also known as HB 1196, passed the House Chamber on an 89-7 vote, with the legislation now heading to the senate.
Saturday’s vote by the House comes as more than two dozen states are contemplating legislation, which puts a halt to the twice-yearly clock change. Last week, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, and U.S. Representative Vern Buchanan, both of Florida, introduced legislation to make daylight saving time permanent nationwide.
