Since I don't see it mentioned...

In November 2018, California voters approved Proposition 7 (by a 60-40
vote), which allows the state legislature to put the state on UTC-7 (the
current DST) year-round. It requires a 2/3 majority in legislature, and
federal law would have to be changed to allow it as well. Apparently,
Florida did something similar, and Senator Marco Rubio is pushing bills in
the U.S. Senate to legalize the changes. [

California Assembly Bill 7
was introduced in December 2018 and is currently in committee.

U.S. Senate bills S. 2536
<https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/senate-bill/2536> and S. 2537
<https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/senate-bill/2537> were
introduced in March 2018 and are currently in committee.
