California voters to decide whether or not to eliminate daylight saving time

State News

California voters will decide in November whether or not to essentially end daylight saving time.

Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Thursday which will put the legislation on the ballot.

If approved, the Legislature would decide how the state’s time would be set — either daylight time or standard time. But time would no longer change twice a year.

Assembly Bill 807 author Assemblyman Kansen Chu (D-San Jose) called daylight saving time “outdated.”

When signing the bill, Brown wrote the message “Fiat Lux!” — which means “Let there be light.”
