Rubio, Colleagues Reintroduce Bill to Make Daylight Saving Time Permanent
A BILL To make daylight saving time permanent, and for other purposes.
While I personally feel "permanent DST" is a mistake; that the more
natural approach is simply stopping DST, I'll give them credit for
recognizing the need to modify the underlying law; ie:
7 (a) REPEAL OF TEMPORARY PERIOD FOR DAYLIGHT
8 SAVING TIME.—Section 3 of the Uniform Time Act of
9 1966 (15 U.S.C. 260a) is hereby repealed.
I wonder what the consequences of that are in industrial sectors and
finance and how politically feasible it might be to change or repeal an
important law that's been in effect since 1966?
