Calif Dims Actually Doing Something Productive?
« on: June 19, 2018, 06:46:44 PM »
Color me shocked, but the Ca Marxist party is actually doing something on a nonpartisan basis and for the people. :woot:
Oh wait, it's not truly nonpartisan, the National Chamber of Commerce is against it, but then, in truth, they're leftists RINO mostly. :biggrin:
They want to repeal Daylight Savings Time in the State, and we all know what happens when Ca does something Right, the rest of the States usually follow suit.
But, let's be honest, Ca hasn't done anything Right in over 3 decades, so this is a bit of a shock..

AB 807 asks voters to repeal a 1949 ballot measure, the Daylight Saving Time Act, that established Standard Pacific Time in California. The older measure also required the state to advance the clock one hour on the last Sunday in April and set it back on the last Sunday of September. Voters later adjusted the fall back period to the last Sunday in October.

Today California conforms with federal mandates on daylight saving time by setting the clock ahead on the second Sunday in March and back on the first Sunday in November. The state never changed the law, and AB 807, with voter approval, would alter the statute to match the current practice.

The Assembly passed AB 807 last year and is expected to sign off again on amendments made in the Senate. Then the bill heads to California Gov. Jerry Brown.

Chu’s ultimate goal is to stop the clock change altogether. He and others before him have argued that doing away with daylight saving time improves public health. But the state would have to jump through several additional hoops next year to officially scrap it.

AB 807 allows the Legislature to amend daylight saving time with a two-thirds vote in the future. If voters approve the ballot measure, Chu, or another lawmaker, would need to introduce a new bill to establish a permanent daylight saving time.

The new proposal would have to clear the Senate and the Assembly and receive the governor’s signature. Then Congress would have to take action to sanction the law and allow states to adopt a year-round daylight saving time.

Yes, it would, but the Marxists in this state aren't known for doing anything good. That's why I'm so damned shocked.

That's the thing, I can't find one thing wrong with this, but they must have an ulterior motive. :sneaky:
