Daylight saving time ends November 6

 

November 3, 2022



Get ready to fall back into longer nights starting Sunday, November 6, at 2 a.m. when Daylight Saving Time concludes and clocks turn back an hour.

However, the future of daylight saving time nationwide is uncertain.

In 2019, Tennessee Governor Bill Lee signed a law scrapping the twice-a-year time shift, but the state law won’t take effect unless Congress first passes a federal law allowing states to observe daylight saving year-round.

The U.S. Senate voted unanimously to pass the Sunshine Protection Action of 2021 on March 15. The bill now awaits a U.S. House vote.

If the act becomes law, the bill would make daylight saving time the new, permanent standard time as of November 5, 2023. That means once clocks spring forward next March, they would not change in November of next year. However, it’s not clear if the House will vote on the act this year.
