The U.S. Senate has passed legislation that would make daylight saving time permanent starting in 2023. Senator Tina Smith says daylight saving time was originally established to help conserve electricity and allow farmers to work as long as possible with sunlight:

“Today there are people doing many, many different things and a lot of folks find daylight saving time, the jumping back and forth to be very disruptive.”

Some groups oppose the change, telling Congress this month, we should not have kids going to school in the dark
