(SACRAMENTO, CA) – With spring forward fast approaching, Assemblymember Chu continues his work on AB 7, which will eliminate the biannual clock change in California and set the state on Daylight Saving Time year-round, pending federal authorization. Assemblymember Chu introduced AB 7 in response to 60 percent of voters supporting Proposition 7, which authorized the Legislature to consider eliminating the clock change if two-thirds of the Legislature approves the measure, and the Governor signs the bill.
