This week, U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) spoke on the Senate floor calling for federal action to follow the will of Washington voters and allow Washington state and the rest of the nation to move to permanent Daylight Saving Time (DST). During the speech, Senator Murray called on the Senate to pass legislation she has cosponsored, the Sunshine Protection Act, to establish permanent DST. Murray also pressed for executive action by the Biden administration to grant states like Washington, that have voted to move to permanent DST, a waiver to do so.
