Get Ready to “Spring Forward” and the Latest on the Bill That Was Supposed to End Daylight Saving Time

by MCS Staff

Daylight Saving Time always begins on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November. Many often use the expressions, “spring forward” and “fall back” to help explain which way we the clocks are moving. On Sunday, March 12, 2023, at 2:00am, we “spring forward” to 3:00am and lose an hour of sleep along the way. The good news? More daylight later into the day as the weather gets warmer.

Daylight Saving Time (DST) is the practice of moving the clocks forward one hour from Standard Time during the spring and summer months and changing them back again for the fall and winter months– in theory allowing us to make better use of natural daylight. A bill to end Daylight Saving Time, called the Sunshine Protection Act, passed the Senate last year, but stalled in the House and expired at the end of the last session of Congress. While there are many who support the bill, right now an end to Daylight Saving Time isn’t imminent.

The Sunshine Protection Act would not “end” Daylight Savings Time. It would do the opposite – make Daylight Savings Time the new “standard” time (spring forward, then never fall back again).
