SACRAMENTO, Calif. -   Voters may decide in November whether to take a first step toward keeping California on daylight saving time year round.

   State lawmakers voted Thursday to place a measure on the November ballot asking voters to give them authority to move toward changing the state's daylight saving policy. 

   It is now up to Governor Jerry Brown to sign it.
  
   The bill is authored by Democratic Assemblyman Kansen Chu of San jose. He says it would improve Californians' health.

   According to the Associated Press voters can't authorize the switch on their own.

    If the initiative passes, lawmakers would have to pass more legislation and earn approval from the federal government to switch to daylight saving time permanently.
