Don’t forget to adjust your clocks over the weekend for daylight saving time, which officially ends at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 5, 2017. Clocks will need to be set back one-hour to accommodate the practice, which began in the early 1900s as a way of preserving daylight during the summer months.
Fun fact about daylight saving time:
In 2015, 39th District Representative Elizabeth Scott proposed House Bill 1479, which would have repealed daylight saving time in the state of Washington. The proposed bill would have added a new section to state RCW implementing year-round pacific standard time.
Although the proposed bill caused quite a flurry in the media, it never made it to the House floor for a vote.
