Florida poised to remain on Daylight Savings Time year around

Florida lawmakers vote to stay in Daylight Saving Time all year long

The first places to use daylight saving time were some cities and regions of Canada in the early 1900s and then Germany in World War I. This was also around the same time the USA first implemented the plan.

March 11 begins Daylight Saving Time Don't forget that this Sunday begins Daylight Saving Time, which means "time" will jump forward one hour at 2 a.m. Sunday.

Opponents say ending daylight saving time would get rid of what many enjoy the most about it - extra time in the evening when it's still light outside. A later sunset is generally more noticeable than a later sunrise. US government officials reasoned that fuel could be saved by reducing the need for lighting in the home. Hawaii and most of Arizona remain on standard time year-round. Today, however, time-zone boundaries and DST's scheduling are regulated by the Department of Transportation.

Other than Hawaii and Arizona, a handful of USA territories - including American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands - do not observe daylight saving time. It just doesn't do anything for them.

Experts have advised the sleep-deprived to avoid screens before bed for years, but the advice is even more important when Daylight Saving Time kicks in.

Parts of Canada: There are a handful of small exceptions, and one large one. They stay on standard time throughout the year.




Daylight saving time was also supposed to improve traffic safety.

Most of the Caribbean: Cuba, the Bahamas and Bermuda are generally exceptions, in that they do observe DST. Also, according to USA Today, 26 states contemplated making it permanent past year.

Daylight Saving Time was initially enacted to save energy. But remember, their seasons are the opposite of ours.

Bill sponsor State Sen. Then, in 1966, congress passed the Uniform Time Act. A state commission recommended MA do the same.

According to the Better Sleep Council, 39-percent of folks are in worse moods following the time change.
