Permanent daylight saving in Oregon? ‘Hell yes,’ says gov


SALEM, Ore. (AP) – Oregon Gov. Kate Brown has strongly endorsed a growing movement to make daylight saving time permanent.

When asked if she was in favor of a proposal to abolish the yearly time shift, the Democrat told reporters on Thursday: “Hell yes!”

“I think everyone’s done with the time change,” she added.

Washington and California are also considering shifting to a permanent daylight saving time. Florida became the first state to approve such a change.

Any state law extending daylight savings time would have to be approved by Congress.

Brown noted that this was one of the few issues where she agrees with President Donald Trump. The president tweeted earlier this week that daylight saving time year-round would be “O.K. with me!”
