New Yorkers are getting ready to “fall back” Sunday morning, ending Daylight Saving Time.
Studies have shown that the seasonal time transition can lead to depression, sleep-less-ness, and overall health concerns.
New York is one of 6 states working together to try and repeal the federal legislation, ending the tradition of turning back the clocks.
Our time would finally be permanent and we’re no longer falling back and springing forward. We can stay on a permanent time that is healthier for the lives of people in Northern New York, and all around.
Daylight Saving first begin in the U.S. in 1918, but did not become a standard yearly practice until 1966 with the signing of the Uniform Time Act.
