FL Senate signs off on year-round daylight-saving time

Floridians will change their clocks Sunday. But that could become a thing of the past under a proposal that cleared the Legislature on Tuesday. The Senate voted 33-2 to give final approval to a measure (HB 1013) intended to eventually keep Florida on daylight-saving time throughout the year.

The next stop is the desk of Gov. Rick Scott, whose office said he will review the proposal after formally receiving it. If Scott signs the bill, Congress would ultimately be responsible for approving the proposed change. The idea of year-round daylight-saving time has been promoted as a way to help the state’s tourism industry, as people would be able to stay out later with the additional sunlight.

Hawaii and most of Arizona currently don’t participate in switching from standard time to daylight-saving time and back. They stay on standard time throughout the year. Daylight-saving time will start Sunday this year and end Nov. 4.
