(SACRAMENTO, CA) - The Governor signed AB 807 today, a bill placing an initiative on the November ballot to ask voters to consider eliminating the practice of switching our clocks twice a year.

In 1949, California voters passed Proposition 12 that conformed California to the federal guidelines to move clocks ahead one hour in the spring and one hour back in the fall. The November initiative will ask voters to repeal Proposition 12.
