California, Illinois take steps toward permanent daylight saving time
By Zack Budryk - 05/06/19 04:48 PM EDT

Two more states have taken steps to make daylight saving time permanent, with Illinois introducing a bill shortly after California advanced its own measure.

Illinois Senate Bill 533 would make daylight saving time the year-round standard for the state beginning on March 8, 2020, according to WREX. State Sen. Andy Manar (D), who introduced the bill, told the news outlet that he was moved to introduce the legislation after talking with a group of high school students from Carlinville High School in Central Illinois.

"I was impressed with the very strong case they presented and that deserves a debate in Springfield," Manar said.

California, meanwhile, advanced its own permanent daylight saving time bill last Wednesday through the state assembly's Utilities and Energy Committee with a 10-0 vote, according to the Desert Sun. The bill next heads to the Assembly floor for a full vote.
