Sunday Morning California Clocks Will Spring Forward

Sunday Morning California Clocks Will Spring Forward

On Sunday morning at 2:00 A.M., California clocks will spring forward one hour, making the sunrise and sunset times come later each day. This weekend could also be California’s last clock change. In the 2018 midterm election, a ballot initiative authorizing the state legislature to reform Daylight Savings Time passed with 60 percent approval. California legislators can now vote to keep California permanently on daylight savings time. The policy change will require two-thirds approval in the legislature, then passage in congress and a presidential signature. Federal law allows states like Arizona and Hawaii to opt out of daylight saving time and stay on standard time year-round. Congress has considered bills to allow states to remain on daylight saving time permanently, but they’ve stalled before legislators in either the house or senate have had the chance to vote on them. If the bill passes the next hurdle in Sacramento, California will join Florida, whose legislature passed a similar bill to implement daylight saving time year-round and which now awaits permission from the federal government. While you’re at it, you may want to change the batteries in your smoke detector. Most new smoke detectors use a 10 year battery, which local officials say will be mandatory by 2022. But for now, most smoke detectors still use nine volt batteries.
