"Sunshine Protection Act" Clears Florida Senate

It looks like the legislature wants the Sunshine State to remain in Daylight Savings Time all year long. 

We're due to "spring forward" this weekend and Senator Greg Stuebe's bill says Florida will stay there for good if Congress gives its permission.

"This bill, once we move the clocks forward in March, if then congress amends the U.S. code to allow states to opt into Daylight Savings Time, when we move the clocks forward in March we would stay in Daylight Saving Time," he said.

Stuebe calls his bill the "Sunshine Protection Act." 

It has passed both the House and the Senate, and is heading for the governor's desk.
