[tz] Permanent DST in the United States

The "Sunshine Protection Act" has passed the US Senate with unanimous
consent. It now moves on to the House. My reading of the text is that this
would mandate permanent DST for the 48 states that currently observe it,
with Arizona (sans the Navajo Nation) and Hawaii able to choose. Notably
there is no clause that delays implementation, so it looks like it would
take effect immediately. This could be problematic if the bill becomes law
near or after the November clock change.
