DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME Clock Change This Weekend!

Daylight Saving Time begins on Sunday, March 13, 2022, at 2:00 A.M. On Saturday night before bed, clocks are set forward one hour.
Why are we still doing this since legislation was crafted by Oregon Senator Ron Wyden and several of his colleagues to end the practice of switching time? That action stalled in 2021.
Wyden’s office said this today – “Senator Wyden is still pressing for the Sunshine Protection Act so Oregonians aren’t needlessly springing back and forth each year in an outmoded exercise that research shows are negative for everybody’s health and our entire economy.”
The bipartisan legislation, if enacted, would apply to states that currently participate in DST, which Oregon and most states observe for eight months out of the year. Standard Time, from November to March, is only observed for four months out of the year. The bill would simply negate the need for Americans to change their clocks twice a year.
