Proposed Ohio Bill Would Make Daylight Savings Time Permanent

  • Two Ohio lawmakers propose ending time change

Of the two options, sticking with permanent Daylight Savings Time, essentially making it the new standard time, is the far superior option and no one can make a cogent argument otherwise. They pointed to a relatively early loss of daylight hours and a resultant rise in electricity bills, as well as a greater number of auto accidents as people who would otherwise drive home from work in daylight were doing so in darkness. What TIME do the clocks change?

Earlier this week the European Union voted to scotch mandatory rules governing daylight saving, giving member states the choice of whether to change their clocks or not.

Federal law dictates that daylight time applies from 2 a.m. on the second Sunday of March until 2 a.m. on the first Sunday of November in areas that do not specifically exempt themselves.

This day is also Mother's Day, so you might want to pop that in your diary too. The clocks were altered the following Sunday, 21 May 1916, returning to GMT on 1 October 1916.

When this happens the evenings will become darker, but that means there will be more light in the mornings.

Left groggy by the disruption, critics say the back-and-forth of the clock is unnecessary and maybe even risky.
