President Trump said on Monday he supports efforts to keep the United States permanently on daylight saving time, which took effect Sunday morning.
“Making Daylight Saving Time permanent is O.K. with me!” he tweeted.
Several states are considering measures that would end the biannual clock changes between standard and daylight saving time.
Three Republican Congressmen from Florida introduced legislation in Congress this month that would end the November clock change from daylight saving time back to standard time. The measures, introduced by Senators Marco Rubio and Rick Scottalong with Rep. Vern Buchanan, would keep the country in daylight saving time, the clock change made in early March that is observed by most states for eight months of the year.
Hawaii, most of Arizona and several U.S. territories—including American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands—do not observe daylight saving time.
