Daylight Saving Time To Return Early Sunday Morning

This week, Florida Senators Marco Rubio and Rick Scott as well as Rep. Vern Buchanan reintroduced the Sunshine Protection Act, which wants to implement Daylight Saving Time all year. The western province of Saskatchewan, which sits above Montana and North Dakota, lies on the part of the continent that typically observes Mountain Standard Time. Federal law allows a state to exempt itself from observing DST, upon action by the state legislature to do so.

- Most of Africa, the Middle East and Asia: While much of Europe utilizes the time change, very little of the rest of the world does.

Arizona chose to drop Daylight Saving Time in 1968, citing a surfeit of sunlight.

Question: What can people do to lessen the impact of Daylight Saving Time on their body? . As if that weren't confusing enough, within the Hopi Reservation sits another small slice of the Navajo Nation that does observe Daylight Saving Time.

According to Winston Churchill, Daylight Saving Time expands "opportunities for the pursuit of health and happiness" for millions of people by optimizing the daylight hours.

- Those thinking of another way: ME cooked up a little workaround to federal approval: Lawmakers there passed a bill to simply move into a whole new time zone (Atlantic Standard Time) and then opt out of DST, which states can choose to do (the state Senate later added a change that stalled its taking effect).

It doesn't feel much like spring, but it's time to "spring ahead" to "Daylight Saving Time". Even Mexico City is considering dropping the practice.

"If signed by the governor, the bill will bring California closer to abolishing the outdated practice of switching our clocks in the fall and spring", Chu told The Sacramento Bee in June.

The reason that springing the clocks forward can kill us comes down to interrupted sleep schedules.

CBS Philadelphia citied studies that show disrupting sleep patterns, even just an hour, can increase the risk for heart trouble.

However, American farmers objected to the change, as it eliminated an hour of their morning light (it's a myth that daylight saving time helps farmers). "These government-mandated interruptions of natural biological rhythms and sleep cycles can wreak havoc on job performance, academic results, and overall physical/mental health".

One would move ME into the Atlantic Time Zone, which would mean the state would no longer set clocks back in fall.
