WASHINGTON, D.C. — America has been springing ahead (and then falling back) since 1918.

State and national leaders have introduced legislation to end the century’s old practice which remains controversial. On Monday, one day after the nation ‘sprung ahead,’ President Donald Trump took to Twitter to publicly endorse the idea of making daylight savings time permanent:
Making Daylight Saving Time permanent is O.K. with me!

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) introduced legislation last week to make daylight saving time permanent and ending twice-a-year time switches.
