When his young children finally started waking up at a reasonable hour, Mike Freiberg thought he had won the battle against sleepless toddlers that every parent fights. Then, on the first Sunday in November, daylight saving time ended and Freiberg’s kids were back to waking up too early.

“You would just get them to the point where they would start waking up at 6 in the morning, and all the sudden you’d change the clocks and it would be 5 in the morning,” he said.

A few months later, Freiberg, a Democratic member of Minnesota’s House of Representatives, introduced a bill to end the twice-yearly time change. If his legislation passes, Minnesota would remain on daylight saving time — permanently.

Minnesota is just one of about three dozen states considering an end to the switch between standard time and daylight saving time this year.
