Republicans in Both Houses Move to Finally Abolish the Time Change

There are plenty of things where taking Washington bureaucrats out of the equation would decidedly make things better.

It may not be the biggest change, but we can at least start with our clocks.

Two Florida Republicans — most notably Sen. Marco Rubio — are pushing to make Daylight Saving Time permanent by reintroducing a bill that would stop the federally mandated time change every year.

“Congressman Vern Buchanan (R-FL) and Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) today introduced the Sunshine Protection Act, legislation that would make Daylight Saving Time (DST) permanent across the country,” the two lawmakers said in a press release.

Most people I know have always hated changing the time. It only adds to confusion politicians already cause. Go back to standard time and leave it alone.

Well we don't have to worry about the dairy lobby opposing it. There just aren't many of them left.
