Sen. Rubio Files Legislation To Keep Daylight Savings Time Year-Round

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio seems to support the idea of letting the clocks stay as they are. He is filing legislation that would have Florida (and the nation) keep daylight saving time all year.

The Republican Senator is filing the "Sunshine Protection Act" and the "Sunshine State Act" on Wednesday.

The first bill would make daylight saving time permanent across the country, as opposed to running from March to November.

The second bill would let Florida remain in daylight saving time on its own.

Last week, the Florida Legislature agreed to make Florida the first state to adopt year-round daylight saving time statewide, but the change cannot happen unless Congress changes federal law.

Rubio said keeping daylight saving time year-round would benefit the economy.
