That’s because a new bill called the Sunshine Protection Act is being moved through Washington. According to reports, the new bill would permanently make Daylight Savings Time a thing instead of Americans ever having to change their clocks again. The bill was brought forth by Senators Sheldon Whitehouse and Marco Rubio though still needs the backing of the House of Representatives.
‘It’s time to brighten the coldest months with an extra hour of afternoon sun’ Whitehouse wrote in a tweet .
‘No more dark afternoons in the winter. No more losing an hour of sleep every spring. We want more sunshine during our most productive waking hours’, Senator Patty Murray said on the floor of the Senate after the passage of the bill in the upper chamber.
