Recently, the Senate passed a bill that, beginning in 2023, would make daylight savings time permanent in an effort to preserve sunlight later in the day. However, the bill has not yet been considered by the House of Representatives.

The bill has both supporters and opponents, and has created tension among people across the nation. Each side has its own unique reasons as to why the bill should or should not be implemented, which makes it difficult to see things from the other side’s perspective. 

Some professionals feel that while abandoning the idea of changing the clocks is a good thing, daylight savings time should not be the system that stays. ”

The supporters of the bill have provided numerous pieces of evidence to support its use. For example, the change would allow people to enjoy outdoor activities later in the day, provide a boost in the economy, and let everyone escape from the chore of changing the clock twice a year. 

The bill allowing the sun to set later in the afternoon would allow for people to enjoy time outdoors for longer. This would mean that businesses that rely on sunlight would be able to remain open longer, increasing their business. 

Some of the supporters also argue that by permanently switching to daylight savings time, seasonal depression, which is often linked to the lack of sunlight in the colder months, would be reduced.

However, there are other people who disagree with this change and feel that it could do more harm than good.

Some professionals feel that while abandoning the idea of changing the clocks is a good thing, daylight savings time should not be the system that stays. It has been shown that standard time matches more with the human sleeping pattern, these people say, so daylight savings time has contributed to health issues like depression. 

Meanwhile, another group of Americans does not want any changes to be made to the current time system. They point out that if daylight savings time was permanent, the sun would not rise until after 8 a.m. during the winter months. This change could be potentially harmful, especially for young kids, who will have to wait for a school bus in the dark. 

Overall, the idea of changing the clocks is a divisive topic and is not a black and white issue like some are making it out to be. Keeping the system the same or making either time shift permanent all come with their own set of challenges, and people must be willing to make sacrifices to reach a resolution.
