The time is going to change again early this Sunday morning. Are you tired of changing the time twice a year? Can't we just have one and stick with it?

It is time for the start once again of Daylight Saving Time. This is the time of year when we "spring forward".

Sunday morning at 2:00 o'clock local time, March 10 is the beginning of Daylight Saving Time this year. This ushers in a time when we move our clocks forward one hour, or just let most of our devices do it automatically.

I don't know where you stand on this issue, but doesn't it feel exhausting when the clocks change especially in the Spring? I feel like it takes weeks to feel normal. A study done by Current Biology even shows that there is a six percent increase in the number of fatal traffic crashes following the time change.

Six out of ten people surveyed in 2022 said they wish our country would stop changing time twice a year. Thirty-five percent of those surveyed say they do not mind that we change our clocks once in the fall and once in the spring.

This topic is not one that is ignored. People seem to be very opinionated about the topic. There was legislation that passed in the U.S. Senate to have one permanent time, but the U.S. House of Representatives never took up the measure. With the discussion and a positive vote the measure can't move forward for the President's signature.

The measure has been introduced again in 2023, but the bill is stalled:

Some states don't even observe time changes:

Some U.S. Senators are still trying to make the time change a thing of the past. The U.S. Senator Tommy Tubberville says he is not stopping his fight to get the changes to halt:

He thinks Daylight Saving Time should be the permanent choice, and it's why he continues to support the Sunshine Protection Act. A 2023 survey found 57% of people are tired of making the change.

The whole point of having the time changes was so that we could conserve energy in our country, but 83% of respondents say it doesn't do any good. One out of every six people surveyed say they end up paying $51 dollars more a month for their energy bills.

Did you know that Louisiana has a trigger law to automatically impose the change in Louisiana if the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate passed the measure, and the President would sign the legislation?

And did you know that federal law actually prohibits states from enacting permanent Daylight Saving Time?! It's in the Uniform Time Act of 1966.

We would like to know what you think. Would you like the clocks to continue to change twice a year or not? If you would like the clock just to stay would you like Daylight Saving Time or Standard Time?
