Talk It Out: Should we stay in Daylight Saving Time year-round?

Talk It Out: Should we stay in Daylight Saving Time year-round?”

That means you'll lose one full hour of time and spend that first week perhaps groggy, disoriented and maybe even in a bad mood. Daylight saving time starts this weekend.

What states do not have daylight savings time?

A 2014 Rasmussen poll found that a declining percentage of adults in the United States - 33% - think daylight saving time is "worth the hassle". While it was a federal act, states were granted the power to decide if they wanted to remain on standard time year-round.

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.

For adults, this might seem easy to do as it's something we've been doing since the Daylight saving time bill was proposed by congress in 1917. Congress, rived over tariffs and gun control and immigration, would have to act on clocks - or the Transportation Department would have to issue a new regulation, an option the Florida legislation does not mention. But it only lasted a few years and between 1945 and 1966, there was no law regarding it so states and municipalities could choose whether or not to observe Daylight Saving.
