Daylight Savings Time starts this weekend


You know the drill. It's Daylight Saving time this weekend. That means you'll have to change your clocks. That means you'll have to deal with getting an hour less sleep.

That's for most of us. Some of us look at this weekend as a reminder that not every state does this, and maybe Texas should think about doing it, too.

During the legislative session in Austin last year, Texas State Senator Jose Menendez tried to pass a bill that would allow Texas to opt out of Daylight Saving Time. It failed. But he told KTRH he has no intention of letting it go. Not only will he try again in 2021, but he wants Washington to do something about this, too.

"I'm going to be leaning on my friends who serve in Congress, and other federal elected officials, to see what they can do to end this archaic practice of flipping the clock back and forth," Menendez explained.

The Senator says times have changed, and DST isn't something we need anymore.

"We don't have a need to be moving a clock back and forth with the seasons. We need to pick a time and stick with it," Menendez stated.

Arizona,Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands do not observe Daylight Saving Time.
