There's no requirement that school districts adhere to AAP recommendations.

I would like for this to become a national thing. The twice per year back and forth is a pointless exercise.

I hope this gets signed into law before November, but I kinda doubt it. It seems too good to be true.

I totally agree and wish they would wake up and make the obvious decision on a national basis❗️

I find it confusing right now when part of the country changes their clocks and parts don't. It's hard to remember how many hours difference there are between me and people I need to call in various states, or figuring out how long a driving trip will take after factoring in the time difference, etc. It's a hot mess.

Use Time and Date to find the correct time for any place in the world. No guessing necessary.

Wait ... stay ahead an hour? Daylight savings time is hard enough for just part of the year; if we all went to permanent DST I’m going to wind up in prison for crimes against morning people. Dang, unless you have cows to milk; go back to bed & leave me alone!

Well the sunrise and sunset times depend on the longitude as well as the time zone. I do not have any problem with daylight saving. We do not have it in Queensland but have it in NSW, Victoria and Tasmania. You just remember that Qld is an hour behind in summer. If we did not have it in Sydney it would be light before 5am in summer. We are back to standard time now and the sun is just setting at 5 30 pm.

Ugh, we have too much sunshine and heat here in SWFL during Standard Time, never mind constant DST!!! Lol, I know I am in a very small minority.
