Messages Sent So Far
Please stop the messing with our schedules. It's an antiquated practice that only aggravates people. As it is Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Virgin Islands, and America Samoa do not participate in this practice.

Abolish unnecessary time flipping twice a year. It serves no effective purpose.

The DST ritual has proven to be a health burden on everyone. Sleep deprivation is a major health problem (CDC reports 1 of 3 persons) in this country, and losing an hour sleep only compounds this problem. Sleep is one of the most important functions that our body needs, and to disruptive our sleep, putting more people at risk for sleep deprivation, and affection our health so that lobbyists and retailers can continue to line their pockets seems immoral to me.

Please eliminate this ridiculous antiquated practice. The science shows that there is a measurable drop in productivity in the days following the change. Eliminating daylight savings would be the biggest step this administration could take in making America Great and it wouldn’t cost a dime.

We shouldn't be held hostage by a bunch of lobbyists! Please end this antiquated madness we call daylight savings. Why do we have to go through this every year when the majority of people do not want it?

We need to align with the sun. As one who suffers from multiple mood disorders including seasonally affective disorder I beg of you to stop the pain. Forcing me and my children to wake up an hour earlier for eight months of the year is literal torture. My three young children, ages five, three and three (twins), lose sleep because they respond to the light at night and will not go to bed early enough when the change forces them to arise earlier than natural. My disability and inability to adjust has cost me employment and hurt our family's income and earning potential. I am not alone. Of Utah's population, 25 percent suffer from some type of seasonal affective disorder. Please hear the cries of your constituency.

I am Puerto Rican in my county were do not fallow this complication of changing time forward & backward. My sleep is already terrible somedays and to adjust to winter time vs summer is terrible. I live permanently in NJ my whole family feels the same so does my neighbor. We all prefer summer time hours and leave it this way forever.

Just a thought, we should all put daylight saving time to a vote, NOT congress. When Daylight Saving Time got extended in 2007, not everybody was for it because they didn`t want to get up in the dark, l think that Standard time is the best time all year round and the correct time too, NOT Daylight Saving time. because you have the lighter morning hours too. If you were to have daylight saving time all year round, especially in the winter, it would be totally be dark in the morning winters, the sun wouldn`t rise until 8:30 a,m, Our bodies are only meant for when it gets light, not the time change twice a year.

This time change serves ZERO purpose. There are not many farmers left to give a crap about an 'extra' hour. Ridiculously antiquated and a downright ignorant law.

New letter: It has been proven in numerous studies now that DST saves no energy and causes loss of productivity, health issues and disrupts sleep for millions. It also represents an increased safety risk for students at early morning bus stops due to loss of morning light. Please stop DST. There is no need for it anymore. Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Virgin Islands, and America Samoa do not participate. Thank you for your consideration in preserving our natural light and sleep cycles for the aforementioned reasons.

This practice is totally unnecessary and an irritating disruption to everyone. "Daylight savings" in higher latitude states/countries makes even less sense as they already have super long days in the summer and very short winter days regardless of what the actual time is. Lets put this antiquated ritual where it belongs - in the history books.

This whole thing about Daylight Saving Time is just plain unnatural! To be totally honest with you, it drives me mad! Being that I'm both totally blind and have Autistic Spectrum Disorder, I'm one of those girls who is resistant to change. And, I'm one of those girls who believes that Mother Earth (I don't believe in God, thank you), made our bodies to wake up with the sun, no matter what our clocks might say. Also, think of the poor farmers, whose cows, horses, pigs, sheep, chickens, and so on, are confused by the semi-annual madness of Spring Forward, Fall Back. Like me, the farmers and their animals don't care what time the clocks say, they wake up with the sun! I mean, in the spring and summer, I hear a rooster crow outside my window from the house behind my apartment building at 5:00 AM! Despite the fact that a law in Eugene, Oregon says that residents aren't allowed to have roosters in the city limits. Hens are OK, but roosters can get you in trouble! That is, unless of course you're a farmer. But then again, farms are usually out in the countryside. For me, this whole Daylight Saving Time is hard on me because it messes with my natural sleep patterns. It seems the only way I can adjust to Spring Forward is to go to bed at 9:00 when I usually go to bed at 10:00, and wake up at 4:23 when I usually wake up at 5:23. Another thing that drives me mad is I have to set my analog clocks an hour forward, because when Spring Forward begins, I'm an hour behind! When my alarm clock says 5:23, my computer's clock, which is on a satellite time server, automatically says 6:23! Even worse, I end up passing out in the afternoon when I want to stay awake. Then I end up staying awake for an hour and go to bed at 11:00 PM, when I usually go to bed at my regular time of 10:00 PM. Why can't we all just agree to stay on Standard Time? November 4, 2018 was the first night I slept well in 8 months! In 2015, I wrote a letter to all three senators in Oregon, and I got an answer saying that sure, Oregon can come off Daylight Saving Time, but it won't happen until 2021! That's ridiculous! Grrr it makes me grouchy in the mornings when we spring forward! I say stop it, and I say stop it now! I've got an idea. Why don't we, as a nation, all band together and make a movement to abolish this ridiculous, antiquated practice that is Daylight Saving time. Let's stop it before it even starts! Or, if we can't get rid of it altogether, let's make a plan to Spring Forward an hour for the three months of spring from March 20 to June 21, then go back an hour in the summertime, since the days are already longer in those months. Who's with me on that one?

It’s truly making people sick it’s not necessary and all it does is make for crabby people in this world it needs to seriously end. Plus they’re now proving that by not taking your meds at a certain time every day and having it switch it literally causes you severe medical issues no joke so let’s stop the madness end it now !!

There are some who feel year round DST is preferable to changing clocks twice a year. Original intent was to add daylight in the evening hours from last weekend of April to the last weekend in September, up through 1954 in NY state. Then, it got extended to late October starting in 1955. More expansion of the Federal DST period started in 1987 and again in 2007. Originally, under the "guise" of energy savings, lowered crime in the evenings. But lobbyists were at work and those special interest groups, such as the golf industry, barbeque industry, and shopping centers wanted more daylight in the evening. Well, they got their way. To the point we now only have about 150 nights/days of standard time. To deny morning daylight to commuters and school kids, from October up through March serves no purpose for their safety. Solution? There are one of two options: 1.) Put USA a half hour ahead of Standard time or half hour slower than daylight time, and keep it there permanently. 2) Or, keep the country on year round Standard Time. States such as Michigan and Indiana, should re-examine as to why they are observing Eastern instead of Central time. Same for most of Kentucky. Southern states take notice as well. Georgia should be on Central, as well as most if not all of Florida. Doubting that would ever happen, I believe the solution is the half hour adjustment, and keep it there. That is, GMT -4.5 for Eastern, GMT -5.5 for Central, etc.

Daylight Savings Time actually increases electrical demand, as air conditioning has eclipsed lighting as the main use of electricity.
