SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WIFR) -- A new bill calls to eliminate Daylight Saving time changes in Illinois.
Senate Bill 533 would make Daylight Saving Time the year-round standard time of the entire state after the second Sunday of March 2020.
The bill was introduced by state Sen. Andy Manar (D-Bunker Hill) in January. It was recently amended and is now under Senate consideration.
Manar told WEEK-TV he was inspired after a high school civics class at Carlinville High School successfully convinced him to eliminate Daylight Saving Time.
