Kentucky representatives file bill that would make daylight saving time permanent

Local News

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WEHT) – Kentucky may be on its way to observing daylight saving time year-round.

Two state representatives filed a bill that would make daylight saving time permanent in the state if Congress passes a federal law allowing states to end the practice of springing forward and falling backward.

Currently, daylight saving time begins in March and ends in November.

If it becomes permanent, there would be an extra hour of darkness in the morning in winter and an extra hour of daylight in the evening.

The bill will be considered during the 2020 Kentucky General Assembly.
