Senate unanimously approves bill to make Daylight Saving Time – Indie

The U.S. Senate on Tuesday unanimously approved the “Sunshine Protection Act” – a bill that would make daylight saving time permanent from 2023.

The “Sunshine Protection Act,” will now go to the House of Representatives.

If the House passes the bill, it will be sent to Biden’s desk for signature.

The Hill reports:

On Tuesday, the Senate approved a proposal to make daylight saving time, which, once passed in the House and signed by President Biden, would allow Americans to no longer have to put their clocks back an hour and lose their autumn afternoon light. And winter

If the law is enacted, it will also mean that the light of day diminishes when you get up early in the morning in November, December, January and February.

In New York, for example, under current law, the sun will rise on December 21, the shortest day of the year at 7:15 p.m. If the Sunshine Protection Act becomes law, New Yorkers will not be able to see the sunrise until 8:15 a.m. that day.

On the other hand, instead of sunset at 4:31 in late December, it will set at 5:31 – giving people a little more daylight to enjoy the afternoon.

Not everyone supports the Sunshine Protection Act.

While many believe it will help reduce seasonal depression, others argue that it is not safe for children.

“The National Association of Convenience Stores opposes the change, telling Congress this month that our children should not go to school in the dark,” Reuters reported.
