TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida could gain an extra hour of daylight if a newly proposed bill is passed by Florida’s legislatures.

State Rep. Mark Danish and state Sen. Darren Soto have each proposed a bill that would prevent the state from rolling clocks back in the winter.

The proposal would mean that sunlight would stay out longer during the winter months. 

If the bill were to be signed, Florida would join Hawaii, Arizona, Puerto Rico, and several U.S. territories that do not observe the time change.
