INTERVIEW: Assemblymember on what happens next with daylight savings time


Californian’s have voted to stop resetting their clocks.

60 percent of voters are in favor of Proposition 7 which calls for year-round daylight saving time.

However, this is not the end of the changing of the clocks just yet.

KRON 4 was joined by Assemblymember Kansen Chu in San Jose.

This was his bill on the ballot and we asked him what the next steps are in implementing the end of daylight saving time.

Assemblyman Chu says he will introduce a bill in the next session and his hope is to have a law passed by 2020 to keep California in daylight savings time year round. 

He has been contacted by Californian’s saying that they do not like switching back and forth, therefore wanting to help carry their voices forward.

In the meantime, there will be no change in moving the clocks forward or backward until a law is passed.
