In the United States, different branches of government determine whether the last Sunday in November should be the day to set clocks back by 60 minutes. Another modification should be made to alarm clocks for this.

It is always possible to consult the current time on Google as a search engine in any way, from connected screens to smart phones, including the majority of electronic devices connected to the internet, fortunately.

Excepciones al horario

The time change does not apply in Alaska, Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, the Northern Mariana Islands, and the Virgin Islands. Hawaii and Arizona, states that have their own regulations for maintaining a fixed schedule, follow the same situation.

Implementing an unnecessary modification regarding time makes it unnecessary, the placement of the sun and the timing of its setting and rising at the same time, due to its proximity to the equator in the case of Hawaii.

¿Será 2023 el último con cambio de horario?

In March 2022, the discussion began to make the practice of changing the time in the United States every hour to a permanent one, that is, to make daylight saving time permanent. The argument is simple.

Senator Ed Markey, one of the original proponents of the so-called Sunlight Protection Act, once expressed, “More daylight hours to be able to be outdoors after school and work, and more smiles, that’s what we receive with a permanent daylight saving time.”

Republican Marco Rubio was included at the moment the initiative was sanctioned in the United States Senate. I acknowledge that this may not be the utmost significant matter for the United States, but it is undeniably one of the topics that engenders the greatest agreement.

Regarding this, there have been no new news. However, President Joe Biden’s office has recently passed the project law, which is seen as a good step forward in the next stage of the House of Representatives.

The majority would support the prevalence of daylight saving time, as per an analysis conducted by CNN, which highlights a survey carried out in March 2022 by Monmouth University. The data from the survey indicates that 61 percent of Americans would be in favor of eliminating the clock adjustments twice annually.
