MI lawmakers introduce bills to keep daylight saving time all year

On Sunday, our clocks will jump an hour, starting at 2 a.m. local time.

The same goes for B.C., which also took steps towards making Daylight Saving Time permanent previous year but is waiting on California before implementing the change. That's when we "fall back", or turn the clocks back one hour and "gain" that hour of sleep back. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., along with four Republican and three Democratic senators, says we should ditch standard time since we only use it four months of the year, from November to March.

Irwin - a longtime proponent of stopping the time change - said in a statement Wednesday that studies have shown changing the clocks leads to increased accidents, higher rates of strokes and heart attacks and decreased productivity.

The bill reflect the Florida legislature's 2018 enactment of year-round DST; however, for Florida's change to apply, a change in the federal statute is required through Congressional approval. There are also broader benefits to the economy, especially within the agricultural industry. "I don't know a parent of a young child that would oppose getting rid of springing forward or falling back". Jeff Irwin, D-Ann Arbor, in the Senate and Rep. Michele Hoitenga, R-Manton, in the House, aim to keep MI on the daylight saving time schedule all year, pending Congressional authorization to let states make that switch.

Florida lowering COVID-19 vaccine eligibility age to 60+ starting March 15
More than 1,000 people a day are receiving vaccines at the site, dependent on the number of doses sent to the Health Department. The government is seeking to get 3.5 million doses of vaccines which will be used to inoculate 65% of the population.

Benjamin Franklin is credited with the idea of Daylight Saving Time.

CBS reports studies have shown making Daylight Saving Time would reduce vehicle crashes and pedestrian accidents as daylight hours will better align with drivers' standard work hours and increase visibility.

Across most of the Lower 48 states, those early winter sunsets before 5 p.m. would become a thing of the past.

Many digital clocks, such as on phones and computers, automatically change the time overnight, but other clocks should be moved ahead one hour before going to bed on Saturday, March 13. Currently, it is not used in Hawaii and most of Arizona. In Fairbanks, Alaska, the sun doesn't rise until almost 11 a.m.in December, yet residents there still manage to trek to school and work in the dark.
