Will daylight saving time become permanent? Turns out the bill is stuck in Congress

What’s going on with the push to make daylight saving time permanent?

Turns out, the measure that was passed in the U.S. Senate is stuck in Congress.

News10NBC looked at the bill, and debate, which prompted a lot of headlines earlier this year pointing to 2023.


That said, it’s going to be complicated, as News10NBC learned getting to that outcome.

The bill is stuck in the House. No formal debate is scheduled. While House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has expressed support for the change – nothing more has occurred.

So, while it would take hold in November 2023 – there’s a chance it doesn’t at all.

Sunrise would happen significantly later during the winter months, but there would be more daylight during the afternoon.

So, as readers can imagine, there’s supporters and opponents of the change.
