Lawmakers need to act on twice-annal time switch

In March 2019 the Washington state House by a vote of 89-7 passed a bill onto the Senate to remain on daylight savings time permanently. In April 2019 the Senate voted 46-2 to do this and it was signed into law by Gov. Jay Inslee on May 8th 2019.

It has since languished in obscurity in Washington D.C., for lack of action. Once again we spring forward. It’s time for the state Legislature to rescind this law and vote to stay on standard time, which requires no action by the Federal Government.
