    This bill allows states to observe daylight savings time year-round.
    (States may already choose to observe standard time year-round.)

??? Why?
States may likewise choose to move one timezone eastward.  Either action
requires only approval by the Secretary of Transportation, not an act
of Congress.

What is the effect on tm_isdst?  Do they care whether their documents
are timestamped PDT or MST?
