A Virginia Senate committee has voted on a bipartisan basis (10 to 4) to move forward with a bill that would make daylight savings time year round in the commonwealth. There would be no more ‘Spring forward, fall back’.
However, even if the bill passed the State Senate and the House of Delegates, and the Governor signs It, Congress must first agree to a law that allows states to do it. At present states do not have the authority.
“The U.S. Senate voted to end the biannual tradition and make daylight saving time permanent in March 2022, but the legislation stalled in the U.S. House. Federal law does not prevent states from moving to standard time.”
Daylight savings time begins this year on March 12th and ends on November 5th.
