A lot of folks in Colorado have been looking forward to this weekend’s time change, not just because of the added daylight, but because it has been “rumored” this will be the last time the clocks will change… Not so fast!

According to CBS 4 Denver:

A new law passed in Colorado last year makes it seem like this will be the last time. While the law does call for year-round daylight saving, Congress must act federally before it happens here.

However, the text of the bill states that daylight saving time would become the year-round standard in the state, but the change would only take effect if Congress enacts a Federal law allowing states to remain on daylight saving time all year.

Currently, Federal law allows states to remain on standard time year-round, but not daylight saving time.

Sen. Marco Rubio, a Florida Republican, has reintroduced legislation for the Senate to consider again this session. The Sunshine Protection Act passed the Senate last year. The House did not take it up for consideration, and the measure expired when the session ended. The bill does have bipartisan support among current Senators. Rep. Vern Buchanan, a Republican from Florida, has introduced a similar bill in the house.
