Permanent Standard Time

In March 2022, the U.S. Senate approved the Sunshine Protection Act of 2021 (S 623), to make daylight saving time the new standard time across the nation. The Sleep Research Society (SRS) responded with a statement on the importance of Permanent Standard Time and the benefits it would have on the nation’s health. The U.S. House did not approve the legislation before its December expiration, though it was reintroduced in March 2023. This page will continue to be updated with resources and information surrounding Permanent Standard Time and the advocacy efforts of the SRS.
