Spring ahead - When Daylight Saving Time 2019 begins

State Lawmaker Plans Bill To End Daylight Saving Time In PA

This weekend, we again will be forced to comply with an archaic tradition, one that offers no benefits.

The idea of resetting clocks forward an hour in the spring and back an hour in the fall was first suggested by Benjamin Franklin in his essay, "An Economical Project for Diminishing the Cost of Light, " which was published in the Journal de Paris in April 1784. I have drafted legislation to permanently place Pennsylvania on Eastern standard time. "We have more efficient ways to conserve energy". The phaseout of incandescent bulbs further minimizes energy differentials.

A 2014 study by the University of Colorado Boulder found that fatal crashes spiked by more than 6% during the six days following the time change. In fact, there are more negative side effects from changing clocks than benefits.

Reduces risk for cardiac issues, stroke and seasonal depression. Other studies claim that people's overall health might suffer due to Daylight Saving Time changes, as the shift disrupts our circadian rhythm, resulting in tiredness. But the change ultimately required Congressional approval, which did not happen. A 2016 study of 300 US metropolitan areas, based on evidence from peer-reviewed academic journals by Chmura Economics and Analytics, found that $434 million in annual economic losses are realized in those metro areas due to DST. "Studies that evaluate the energy impact of DST are mixed". The newspaper reports that a companion bill was filed in the House by U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan. And people would be saved the agony of the twice a year resetting of clocks. That proposal was a response to the Florida Legislature voting to keep the state on year-round DST.

If passed, the legislation would apply to states who now participate in DST, which most states observe for eight months out of the year.

As the Keystone State, Pennsylvania should be the leader among surrounding states in eliminating DST. The western province of Saskatchewan, which sits above Montana and North Dakota, lies on the part of the continent that typically observes Mountain Standard Time.

Apparently, last Tuesday, she was called in at the end of her shift, was sacked on the spot, and was escorted out of the hospital. While the odds are seemingly stacked against Smollett, Latifah isn't the only star who has rallied their support for the actor.


The Sunshine Protection Act would make DST permanent across the country, something the senator said in a written statement could have multiple benefits.

For virtually all of the country, Daylight Saving Time begins March 10 at 2 a.m., when the clocks are set ahead an hour.
