After being passed, the bill will go to the desk of Gov. Rick Scott. If the governor approves, this change will take an act of Congress.

This weekend, make sure to set your clocks ahead as a 2008 US Department of Energy study reports that daylight saving time could reduce your annual energy use by about 0.03%.
