Time will tell if changing of the clocks continues

Daylight Saving Time begins at 2 a.m. Sunday.

"The call to end the antiquated practice of clock changing is gaining momentum throughout the nation", Rubio said.

Earlier this week, a group of United States senators from both parties have submitted a bill to make daylight saving time permanent throughout most of the U.S.

Five Republican and three Democratic senators are co-sponsoring the legislation.

Jeff Irwin, D-Ann Arbor, in the Senate and Rep. Michele Hoitenga, R-Manton, in the House, aim to keep MI on the daylight saving time schedule all year, pending Congressional authorization to let states make that switch.

The legislation, if approved, would give most of America additional evening daylight in the winter months, but would reduce the amount of morning sunlight during daylight standard time.

Daylight Saving Time 2021 begins on the second Sunday in March.

This means one hour of precious sleep will be lost for all those who have to wake up by a certain time Sunday, and residents will likely experience some of the brief disorientation that often comes with changing the clocks.

If regional agreement is reached, Ontario residents could potentially be springing ahead for the last time this weekend. If the bill becomes law and DST is made permanent before November, we wouldn't change our clocks again in the fall - or ever again.

Hoitenga's legislation as introduced includes a provision that would only put year-round daylight saving time in effect in MI only if surrounding states - Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin - also observed daylight saving time all year. The policy, regulated by the Department of Transportation, aims to save energy, reduce traffic fatalities, and reduce crime.

Benjamin Franklin is credited with the idea of Daylight Saving Time. Evidence suggests the change could reduce vehicle accidents, cardiac issues, depression, and even stroke.
