Daylight-saving time ends in November. But didn’t WA decide to stop doing this?

From The Olympian:

Daylight saving time ends at 2 a.m. on Nov. 6, requiring most Americans to set their clocks back one hour. This year’s daylight saving time has been underway since March 13.


Did Washington vote to end daylight-saving time?

The Washington Legislature passed a bill in 2019 to remain permanently in daylight-saving time. That means the state would stop changing the clocks twice a year and no longer have to endure darkness before dinner during winter. However, the changes won’t take effect at the state level until Congress votes to allow such a shift. Currently, states can only stay permanently in standard time.

From Orion Donovan-Smith in The Spokesman Review (Spokane):

Daylight Saving ends this Sunday, setting clocks back by an hour across most of the U.S. Most Americans want the twice-yearly time changes to end, and members of Congress are trying to pass a bill that would do just that. But Senators and Representatives can’t seem to decide if saving time or standard time should be preserved, causing a standstill on the issue.
