It’s time to sunset daylight saving time in the Lone Star State and let dawn “Texas Time.”

Key points

  • Daylight saving time is a disruptive and antiquated system that should be abolished. In its place, the Legislature should establish “Texas Time.”
  • By creating Texas Time, policymakers can stop the twice-annual clock change, fix one permanent standard, and set Texas apart.
  • Ending the time change mandate would honor Texas’ spirit of independence and create a better environment for public health and wellness.
  • Since 2015, at least 350 bills and resolutions have been introduced in almost every state to permanently observe daylight saving time or standard time.
