California measure for daylight saving time heading to November ballot

(KGTV) - A bill that would give California voters the option of halting the twice-yearly changing of clocks is heading to the November ballot.

Gov. Jerry Brown signed the bill Thursday that would let voters choose whether to move the state toward permanent daylight saving time.

If AB 807 passes, state lawmakers would have the power to make the change should Congress allow it.


Daylight saving time begins on the second Sunday of March, when clocks move ahead an hour, until the first Sunday in November, when clocks jump an hour back.

The move allows for more daylight in the evening and less in the morning.

The only other states that do not observe the time changes are Arizona and Hawaii.
