SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WTVO) — An Illinois state senator introduced a bill that would make Daylight Saving Time permanent year-round starting the second Sunday of March 2020.

State Sen. Andy Manar (D-Bunker Hill) says he was inspired by a group of central Illinois high school students, after a high school civics class convinced him the change should be permanent.

“I was impressed with the very strong case they presented and that deserves a debate in Springfield,” he said.

Manar introduced Senate Bill 533 last week.
