Daylight Saving Time begins this Sunday, March 13th at 2am. Clocks need to be set to 3am or one hour later (“spring ahead”).
Daylight Saving Time runs from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November throughout the world. In the US, it is a federal law, but states can request to be exempted.
Hawaii and much of Arizona do not observe Daylight Saving Time.
A 2019 bill passed in the Washington state legislature said the state would make such a change if the US Congress approved. But nothing has changed in the 3 years since because the US Congress has not passed legislation to end Daylight Saving Time.
The 2022 Washington state legislature was presented Senate Bill 5511, sponsored by Sen. Jim Honeyford, R-Yakima County, that if passed, would place Washington on standard time year-round “until Congress authorizes states to observe Daylight Saving Time year-round.” It failed to go beyond the Senate committee.
