Re: For those of you who have to change your clocks.

@Wiskota    I couldn't find any mention of a new bill, however, Marco Rubio sponsored the last bill that went nowhere.  Maybe we should all start writing our congressional reps.

@Kachina624   I responed to the post "Amen to that" figuring you were in favor of same time all year.

Re: For those of you who have to change your clocks.

@Shanus    The post to which I was referring stated that the last bill in congress, the 2019-2020 Congress, died without a vote.  Now there's supposed to be another which will probably also go nowhere.  Both sponsored by Marco Rubio.

The last thing Arizona needs is another hour of sunlight and miserable heat in summer. That's why I'm glad we don't change.

I understand your point, but where I am it’s an extra hour to play ball, or swim, or go for a walk with family after work.

 

That’s why I like it.

That makes sense to me.

I just wish they'd pick one and stick with it. Adjusting time twice a year messes with my dog's sleeping.

What I can't understand is why this hasn't already happened.  Who would be opposed to it?  Are there people who actually like to change clocks (and their body rhythms) twice a year?  A bill to end this craziness seems like a no brainer.


We voted for it a few years ago in Cali but so far, nothing done
