US Senate Approves Permanent DST Bill

On March 15, 2022, the US Senate unanimously passed the Sunshine Protection Act. The bill proposes—beginning in November 2023—that all states go on permanent DST, which is one hour later than standard time. States that have passed legislation for permanent DST will be allowed to enact their legislation.

After the passing of the bill in the Senate, the legislation heads next to the House of Representatives. If passed in that chamber, it ends up on the President’s desk to be signed into law.

This has not happened yet. The current law only allows states to opt out of DST but not to follow it year-round.

US States Ready to Remove DST

19 states have enacted legislation or passed regulations for permanent DST:

Canada Following the US

Canadian provinces of Ontario and British Columbia also want to ditch the switch in favor of permanent DST. However, their proximity to the US border is making them wait.

DST might become history in the European Union

Mexico Close to Removing DST

Mexico is considering removing DST permanently in most of the country. If the Mexican Senate completes the final stage of approval and signs the bill into law, October 30, 2022, may be the last time most Mexico set their clocks back one hour.

33 locations close to the country’s northern border, including the state of Baja California, will continue to follow the time change schedule of the United States and end DST on November 6.

The states of Sonora and Quintana Roo do not observe DST at all, so the clocks will not change there.

Other Countries and Territories

DST will also end on November 6 in CubaBermudathe BahamasSaint Pierre and Miquelon, and Thule Air Base in Greenland.
