California Moves Closer to Dumping Daylight Savings Time

Despite warnings from law enforcement that criminals hate daylight savings time (DST) because they are more likely to be seen by witnesses and police, Assembly Bill 385 cleared the Senate Appropriations Committee and is headed for confirmation, to be placed on the state ballot in 2018.

Texas Bill: ‘Spring Forward’ may ‘Fall Back’ for the Last Time in 2015

A bill that would have Texas opt out of Daylight Savings Time (DST) will have a hearing in the Government Transparency and Operation Committee on Wednesday. If the bill is enacted into law, it will take effect on September 1, 2015 unless it receives a two-thirds majority. If this happens the law would take effect immediately upon being signed by Governor Greg Abbott.
