California moves closer toward ending Daylight Saving Time

(Los Angeles Times) Lawmakers in the state Assembly approved an effort on Thursday that could end with California voters scrapping the biannual tradition of moving their clocks ahead or behind by an hour.

Assembly Bill 807 is the second effort in as many years by the Legislature to revisit California’s use of Daylight Saving Time. The state’s voters first approved its use through a 1949 ballot measure. And because of that history, the issue must go back to voters if changes are to be made.

The bill received almost no discussion in Thursday’s 48-6 vote in the Assembly. It now heads to the state Senate, where a similar effort died last year.
