THE STATE SENATE IS VOTING TO MAKE DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME PERMANENT IN ILLINOIS.

 

THE IDEA WAS PRESENTED TO SENATOR ANDY MANAR OF BUNKER HILL BY HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS IN HIS DISTRICT. HE SAYS THEY WANTED TO OPEN A DISCUSSION ON THE SUBJECT.

 

 

SENATOR LINDA HOLMES OF AURORA VOTED AGAINST THE MEASURE.

 

 

THE BILL CALLS FOR ILLINOISANS TO SET THEIR CLOCKS FORWARD AN HOUR ON MARCH EIGHTH AND LEAVE THEM THERE. BUT THAT’S ONLY IF THERE IS A CHANGE IN FEDERAL LAW OR CONGRESS GRANTS THE STATE A WAIVER FROM THE CURRENT PRACTICE.
