Daily Question: Daylight Savings Time or Permanent Standard Time
In a move to switch to a permanent daylight savings time by Assemblyman Kansen Chu (D-San Jose), dropped his bid for the spring schedule year round. Chu now will revisit the idea next year and now wants to see if the people want permanent daylight savings or standard time.
This comes after voters already approved a ballot initiative to give the legislator the chance to try year-round daylight savings time in California which would also need to be approved by US Congress.
Assemblyman Chu took to Twitter:
I want to clarify that AB 7 is not dead and will be moving forward in January. My main goal will always be to stop the practice of switching back and forth, and I am dedicated to make this a reality. As this is an issue that impacts all Californians
I want to take the next few months to ask my constituents their thoughts on permanent daylight saving time vs. permanent standard time. It’s important to me that my constituents are heard and putting a pause on moving the bill will give me the opportunity to do more outreach.
