If the federal government allows it, South Carolina could keep Daylight Saving Time permanently instead of only from March to November. According to the Associated Press, the Senate Judiciary Committee in Columbia unanimously sent the proposal to the Senate floor with little discussion.
It’s possible that the entire country could follow suit. The AP reports that a bill called the “Sunshine Protection Act” is expected to be introduced in Congress this week to make Daylight Saving Time permanent nationwide. I’m all for it.
If one state does it, neighboring states would have to, wouldn’t they? Can you imagine what it would be like to live in South Carolina and work in North Carolina if the two states weren’t in sync? Traffic on I-77 is hard enough without the added challenge of a time change.
