Florida lawmakers vote to stay in Daylight Saving Time all year long

The time change saves energy. Isn't the time well enough if left alone?

Get ready to spring forward! Britain's foe in World War I, Germany, was the first to start using Daylight Saving on April 30, 1916, in order to conserve the amount of electricity consumed.

Jacoby expects that the permanent Daylight Saving Times will stretch out his dinner hour and lead to him being able to accommodate more customers during the evening rush. "The spring time one is a harder one, that's where you are losing sleep".
