Daylight Savings Time Ends Sunday
The good news is you gain an hour this weekend. The bad news…standard time is coming back and it will get darker earlier. Set your clocks back an hour beginning this Sunday, November 6.
California voters overwhelmingly passed Proposition 7 in 2018 that would have made daylight savings time permanent in California, but a bill to enact the change was never passed by the Legislature. In March 2022, the U.S. Senate unanimously approved legislation called the Sunshine Protection Act that would maintain daylight savings time permanently beginning in November 2023. The bill is still working its way through the House of Representatives.
Did you know? The U.S. Department of Transportation oversees the nation’s time zones and the uniform observance of daylight saving time, according to transportation.gov. The oversight of time zones was assigned to the DOT to help keep track of transportation.
