When 2023 comes around, people may no longer have to “spring forward” or “fall back” with their clocks.
While people are still getting used to this week’s daylight saving time change, the United States Senate unanimously approved a bipartisan proposal called the S.623: Sunshine Protection Act, which would make daylight savings time permanent as of Nov. 2023.
This means that once the fall of 2023 comes, Americans will never have to have to set their clocks back an hour lose an hour of afternoon daylight during the fall and winter months.
Cases have been made how the permanent time change would have positive effects on the economy, public health, and even help with cutting energy consumption. At present, nearly a dozen states across the United States have already standardized daylight saving time.
At present, the House of Representatives still have to pass the bill before it is signed into law by the president, but if passed, there will be only one more year to go of changing clocks.
