TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio is filing legislation that would let Florida and the nation keep daylight saving time all year.
The Florida Republican is introducing the "Sunshine Protection Act" and the "Sunshine State Act" on Wednesday.
The first bill would make daylight saving time permanent across the country. Currently, it runs from March to November. Most Americans must set their clocks ahead one hour in the spring and then turn them back in November.
The second bill would let Florida remain in daylight saving time on its own.
