Daylight Saving bill heads to the Senate

Daylight Saving

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.
