Senator Kirsten Gillibrand says moving clocks back an hour like we did this past Sunday is outdated. She supports a Senate passed bill which would make daylight saving time year-round. Gillibrand said times have changed and the common sense legislation will end a tired tradition.
“Americans changed their clocks at 2 AM this Sunday, and hopefully the sun is setting on this dated practice. There should be no daylight between the House and Senate on this issue,” said Senator Gillibrand. “Times have changed, and this commonsense legislation will end a disorienting and tired tradition. Making daylight saving time permanent could help reduce energy costs and seasonal depression, and I encourage the House to pass this bill before the clock runs out.”
The bill now heads to the US House and if passed will end up on the President’s desk to be signed into law.
