There's a proposal to switch Florida to daylight saving time year-round

Not Released

That's because the bill still requires lawmakers to ask U.S. Congress for approval. Daylight saving was repealed the following year.

What states do not have daylight savings time?

Urban legend says the use of Daylight Savings Time helps farmers, but in reality, cows and chickens don't care what the clock says. Hawaii, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, and the United States Virgin Islands have all sought and received exemptions.

In 1974 and 1975, Congress extended daylight saving to save energy during the energy crisis.

US law was amended in 1986 and then again in 2007, adjusting daylight savings time from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November. But it only lasted a few years and between 1945 and 1966, there was no law regarding it so states and municipalities could choose whether or not to observe Daylight Saving.

It's debatable whether DST saves energy or increases productivity, but "springing forward" and "falling back" have been linked to increased traffic accidents due to unfamiliar lighting in the morning or evening.

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to hold true. Maine's case for bucking the biannual clock-changing is that the sun sets there before 4 p.m. between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

In Canada, researchers found that there is a significant increase in auto accidents, workplace injuries and accidental deaths. Also, heart attacks spike after DST goes into effect. Restaurants, on the other hand, would benefit. They also said disrupting sleep patterns with a time change can cause problems such as tardiness, fatigue, decreased motivation and decreased alertness.
