Will Sunday be the last time we have to change our clocks?
Possibly. Last week the Georgia House approved a bill that would keep the state on daylight saving time permanently.
From the perspective of people who walk, this is huge. Year after year, the change back to standard time makes evenings suddenly darker and results in a big increase in pedestrian fatalities and injuries.
Yet the loss of standard time does have a downside. If the bill passes, children who walk to school will be doing so before sunrise on more days of the year.
Current federal law prohibits states from observing daylight saving time year-round. So if the Georgia Senate passes the bill and it becomes state law, it would still require an act of Congress for this to become a reality.
