Florida Will "Fall Back" With The Rest Of The Country Next Weekend

Daylight Saving Time is a confusing subject for many people in the Sunshine State.

In March, the Florida Legislature passed the Sunshine Protection Act. Gov. Rick Scott signed the bill, which would make Daylight Saving Time permanent in Florida.

But before it can go into effect, Congress has to amend federal law to allow it.

So people in Florida will continue to get to enjoy an extra hour of sleep this weekend as they turn their clocks back, along with (most of) the rest of the country.

That's right -- Florida will still be doing "fall back" on Nov. 4 when Daylight Saving Time ends.

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, introduced two bills in the U.S. Senate after Florida's bill passed but Congress has yet to move on either. They have been referred to the Commerce, Science and Transportation committee.
