Time for a Change?

A bipartisan group of senators plans to introduce a bill in Washington to make daylight saving time permanent for most of the U.S.  Daylight saving time is currently observed from March through November in most of the U.S. except for Hawaii and Arizona. 

Under this bill, Arizona would be in Pacific Time all year, and Hawaii would permanently be six hours behind the Eastern Time zone.  The bill would eliminate the need to change clocks twice a year.  Five Republicans and three Democrats are co-sponsoring the bill, and 15 states have already passed bills to move to year-round daylight saving time, but they can’t go into effect without federal approval.
