According to my understanding, this prediction is based on the fact that
the House and Senate are currently controlled by a different party from
main members of those who submit the bill, and as that controlling party
often disagree with the interpretation and in past often reject issues
raised by the opposing party on the matter of Science  Technology, and
Communications, the bill jave low chance to pass.
But I don't think Permanent Daylight Saving Time is the sort of traditional
technology and science and communication themed bill that Democrats must
opppse Republican proposals.
