People in Washington don't want to get rid of DST.  We want it permanently.

 

DST is the time during summer when it stays lighter later.  We hate standard time in winter when it is dark before we leave work.

Don't hold your breath.

 

Personally, I don't really care which one, just pick one. 🍻

 

We voted to stick to one in 2018 here in CA - still changing clocks twice a year like everyone else ~4 years later.

"... And I'd kill to get away; I'd die to make my own way.  And I'd lose to celebrate;  I'd win to see the good days.  And I'll never stop the fighting, so bring to me your worst.

I'll never stop believing that I could rule the world one day ..."

The law says a state can choose not to go to DST but cannot choose to be on permanent DST.  Allowing that requires a law being passed.

All I know is my beta testing brain knows how much "fun" this'll be for the tech world and TBH I really wouldn't mind being one of those drones like I was for Y2K. 😛

Interesting set of maps on the topic:

 

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-03-19/maps-show-where-daylight-saving-leaves-cities-dark

 

Turns out that the bill passed the Senate on a "No One Objected so it Passes without a Vote" rule.  Also turns out that many Senators had no idea it was on the table and thus weren't even present to object.

Hilarious.

 

Yeah, definitely not holding my breath on this becoming a thing next year.

Gloriously hilarious indeed!

 

I read something that talked about how the actual days have changed so much over time that we're really already at the peak times it should be, but my thoughts are more on the tech aspect.
