Crist Calls for Permanent Daylight Savings Time

Washington, DC – U.S. Representative Charlie Crist (D- St. Petersburg) released the following statement voicing support for H.R. 69, the Sunshine Protection Act, legislation that would make daylight savings time permanent.

“Twice a year, most Americans are asked to take part in the outdated ritual of changing their clocks. Floridians know that ‘fall back’ robs them of an hour of daylight after work or school, and they also know it’s a health and safety issue. People feel more blue when they get less sunshine,” said Rep. Crist. “Setting clocks back also leads to more car accidents, higher energy use, and messes up kids’ schedules – something Florida parents know all too well. Enough! Congress should pass the Sunshine Protection Act so this is the last time we ever have to set our clocks back. Let’s bring more sunshine to the Sunshine State!”
