Which States Abolished Daylight Saving Time?

While many states have tried, none have successfully eliminated daylight saving time.

Arizona and Hawaii don’t currently change their clocks (they never have), so they’re the only US states that consistently keep their clocks the same year-round.

While no state has yet successfully eliminated daylight saving time, there is hope for 2023 given that Florida Senator Marco Rubio introduced a successful bill called the Sunshine Protection Act of 2021.

Why are people against moving to a permanent time?

Because the days get shorter in winter, many parents are reluctant to send their children to school while it’s still dark outside.

The sun rises as children report to the bus stops as Daylight Saving Time is introduced.

Also, the DOT recently credited DST with preventing accidents, reducing crime, and conserving energy.
