On Sunday morning, Americans will once again change their clocks, moving from Standard Time to Daylight Saving Time (DST).

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) continues to make the case for permanent DST. He recently reintroduced his bipartisan legislation to lock the clock. The bill passed the Senate unanimously last year.

A broadcast quality version of the video can be downloaded HERE and a transcript of his remarks is below.

“We’re one of the few countries on Earth that continues to do this ritual of springing forward and falling back and changing our clock twice a year.

“That makes no sense. It’s time to end it. I think we should pick one and stick with it.

“I think Daylight Saving is the one, for a lot of reasons. It’s something the Florida legislature’s asked for, and that’s what I’m going to try to do here again.”
