Should Daylight Savings Time Be Canceled?

NJ Congressman Donald Norcross (1st District, D) sent the following note to his constituents pertaining to making daylight savings time permanent. Daylight saving time (DST), also referred to as daylight savings time, daylight time (United States, Canada, and Australia), or summer time (United Kingdom, European Union, and others), is the practice of advancing clocks (typically by one hour) during warmer months so that darkness falls at a later clock time. The typical implementation of DST is to set clocks forward by one hour in either the late winter or spring ("spring forward"), and to set clocks back by one hour in the fall ("fall back") to return to standard time. As a result, there is one 23-hour day in early spring and one 25-hour day in the middle of autumn. (Wikipedia)

Not everyone receives his mailings so we thought we pass it along. For decades Washington DC politicians have discussed changing the practice but it never goes any further than the talking stage. If you have an opinion or you are unsure you can cast your vote below. Note if you answer the survey you are subscribing to the Congressman's newsletter. You can always cancel it if you don't like it. ~CNBNews



As I set my clocks forward this weekend, I was reminded of the debate going on in Congress about making daylight savings time permanent. Last year, the U.S. Senate voted in favor and touted its economic and mental health benefits. Opponents argued that such an action would lead to darker mornings during the winter and disrupt people's sleep schedules.

Should Congress make daylight savings permanent?



I look forward to seeing which side of the debate you land on. Click the poll above!
