House approves push for daylight-saving time

The Florida House on Wednesday overwhelmingly approved a proposal aimed at observing daylight-saving time year-round in the state. House members voted 103-11 to support the measure (HB 1013), filed by Rep. Jeanette Nunez, R-Miami, and Rep. Heather Fitzenhagen, R-Fort Myers. Fitzenhagen said moving to daylight-saving time could help the tourism industry, as people would be able to stay out later in the sunlight.

A similar bill (SB 858) also is moving through the Senate. If approved by the Legislature, the proposal to shift to year-round daylight-saving time would depend on congressional approval. Daylight-saving time will start March 11 this year and end Nov. 4.
