EUGENE, Ore. -- With some lawmakers in Oregon wanting to do away with daylight saving time, the decision may end up in the hands of voters in the next general election.
Republican State Senator Kim Thatcher introduced the measure earlier this month, but as of now, a committee hearing still hasn't been scheduled.
If it does eventually pass the state House and Senate, it would be up to voters to decide if they want to get rid of the twice-yearly clock change.
Last year, sixty percent of California voters approved a measure to make daylight saving time permanent.
Washington lawmakers are considering a similar measure -- saying it would be best if all the west coast states were synced up.
Only time will tell if it passes in Oregon -- but if it does, it would take effect at 2 a.m. Nov. 7, 2021.
