U.S. Senator Marco Rubio has introduced a bill to keep daylight saving time nationwide.

The “Sunshine Protection Act” and the “Sunshine State Act” were introduced on Wednesday with the first bill making daylight saving time permanent across the country and the second bill allowing the State of Florida to remain in daylight saving time independent from the rest of the country.

Currently daylight saving time runs from March to November, however last week the Florida Legislature agreed to let the state adopt year-round daylight saving time. That change cannot take effect unless Congress changes the federal law.
