On Tuesday, the Senate voted unanimously to pass the Sun Protection Act, which would make daylight saving time permanent starting next year. For Hoosiers, this means that the time we are ahead of us would be the time for the rest of the year, one hour ahead of what is currently known as standard time.

It passed the Senate on Tuesday and now heads to the House of Representatives. The change would mean later sunsets in the winter months, but it would also mean later sunrises. Rubio and other supporters of the Sun Protection Act also say it would reduce crime at night and encourage children to engage in more physical activity. Most Americans just set their clocks forward one hour on Sunday, when daylight saving time began.
Hawaii and most of Arizona don't see the time change. It's been a popular debate in Indiana, but some health experts have concerns. Avidan says problems that arise as you move forward include doctors making more medical errors, more fatal heart problems, and a higher risk of depression and suicide. He says that for some, those problems don't go away as long as daylight saving time occurs.
Other experts, such as David Reich of the National Road and Safety Foundation, say that because we lose an hour of sleep and it's darker in the morning, there could be a higher risk of car accidents. Currently, Arizona and Hawaii are the only two states that do not respect daylight saving time. NEXSTAR) — Daylight saving time begins Sunday, March 13, which means Americans in all but two states will adjust their clocks an hour in advance and lose some sleep. Two states, Hawaii and most of Arizona, observe a permanent standard time, which means they don't change their clocks at all.
Standard time is the time between November and March. While the rest of the U.S. Switches to daylight saving time, Arizona and Hawaii actually change time zones Arizona changes from mountain time zone to Pacific time zone, while Hawaii shifts from five hours back to Eastern time. In the past four years, 18 states have enacted laws or resolutions to keep residents daylight saving time throughout the year, pending congressional approval.
In some cases, legislation requires neighboring states to enact similar laws. This year alone, nearly 30 states are considering daylight saving time legislations, according to NCSL. In some cases, even if the legislation is passed, it will not be able to take effect until your neighbors make the same move. In Iowa, for example, one of its pending bills says that the state cannot leave daylight saving time until Illinois, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin enact similar legislation.
To make it more complicated, Nebraska's pending law says it won't change until three of its adjacent states adopt similar laws. There is also a difference between what some states expect, according to the NCSL. While most want to stick with daylight saving time throughout the year, which means that whatever time their clock is set from March to November becomes permanent, some want to stick to standard time. These include Colorado, Georgia, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, Vermont, and Washington.
Two Years Later, Dozens of Cities Adopted Their Own Daylight Savings Time Policies. By the mid-1960s, 18 states were observing daylight saving time and 12 were staying in standard time. In 1966, Congress passed the Uniform Time Act, implementing the current daylight saving time observed by 48 states, reports the Smithsonian.

Donald Trump reportedly threatened to sue Fox News for what he called a “false announcement about him from the Lincoln Project”. The Senate approved by unanimous consent on Tuesday the Sun Protection Act, a measure that would make daylight saving time permanent. It was introduced by Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Ed Markey (D-MA) and had 16 other co-sponsors. Detractors of daylight saving time say scientific studies evaluating the impact of the time policy change on daylight saving time in Indiana have identified a significant increase in energy use and electricity spending by Indiana households.
Several counties in eastern Indiana (Ohio and Dearborn counties, near Cincinnati; and Floyd, Clark, and Harrison counties, near Louisville) chose to observe daylight saving time unofficially, despite Indiana statute. Indiana enacted the statute, officially placing northwest and southwest Indiana in the Central Time Zone, in observance of daylight saving time, and the rest of the state in Eastern Standard Time throughout the year. But in 1985, the Indiana General Assembly, in Concurrent Senate Resolution 6 of 1985, asked the USDOT to move five counties in southwest Indiana (Posey, Vanderburgh, Warrick, Spencer and Gibson) from the Central Time Zone to the Eastern Time Zone. Supporters of daylight saving time and a common time zone in Indiana often claim that Indiana should adopt the Eastern United States timing system to preserve interstate business with that region.
