Here is a helpful guide to Daylight Saving Time bills in state legislatures, and in D.C.
For the very latest, be sure to follow us on Twitter.
To see every bill in your state, see the map below.
If you are looking for information about the Sunshine Protetion Act in the U.S. Senate, well, as of right now it’s stalled, but it's gaining momentum with new co-sponsors seemingly added every week. (I've written about it here, here and well, a bunch of times.) I'm also working directly with the office of the sponsor, and doing some other stuff behind the scenes to help. I've posted information here if you'd like to help.
There’s also a bill introduced in the U.S. House, the Daylight Act.
If you are looking for what's going on with the changes to Summertime rules in Europe, I'm afraid I can't be much help as it seems a bit obtuse. It looks to me like there will be no more clock changing as of 2021.
The grid below shows all the bills for the 2020 legislative session, but has some bills from 2019 that may carry-forward.
Also, states like Florida that passed a bill in previous years will not be on that list. (See below for more on that.)
See my How To Help guide for the best ways to get involved.
Some individual states have more information below.

Note that this is the bills active right now, and does not include bills from previous years. To see if I've written about your state, type it in to the search box on the right. If you want me to write about your state (or if you’d like to write about your state) just contact me.
