Spring Forward for the Last Time in Texas?
SAN ANGELO, TX -- Spring forward tonight. Daylight saving time begins at 2 a.m. Sunday and the twice yearly changing of the clocks robbing millions of people who enjoy routine of that 'extra' hour of sleep but this could be the last time to spring forward in Texas if the legislature acts.
State Representative Lyle Larson of San Antonio has introduced legislation to end daylight saving time.
In a news release earlier this week, Larson said, "In a world without daylight saving time, we could all enjoy additional time outdoors by engaging in recreational activities,” Larson said in a news release Monday, the first day lawmakers could pre-file bills for the upcoming 86th Legislative Session. “We could maintain our sleep schedules, feeling healthier and happier as a result.”
Daylight saving time began as a measure to save energy in World War I. It became official in 1966. Arizona and Hawaii don't observe daylight saving time.
Daylight saving time allows for more hours of daylight in the evenings.
Love it or hate it, daylight saving time is the law of the land and Texas for now.
