U.S. Senate passes bill to make Daylight Saving Time permanent

The U.S. Senate unanimously passed a bill Tuesday that would make Daylight Saving Time permanent starting in 2023.

The bill now heads to the House, and if passed, it would end biannual clock changes and would likely keep most of Arizona permanently in the Mountain time zone.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who co-sponsored the bill, says if it is passed, the country would move back to the Standard Time Zone in November of this year, and permanently spring forward in March 2023.
