REDDING, Calif. - Two years ago, California voted to get rid of daylight savings time. So why are we turning our clocks back on Sunday?
People are wondering whatever happened TO Proposition 7?
“I wondered what happened to it,” said Diane Sunderland of Redding.
“I thought about it a month ago, wondering whatever happened to it,” said Elaine Radford of Redding.
Proposition 7 would have done away with daylight saving's time in California. In 2018, 60% of people voted yes for Prop 7 and the prop passed.
“We were for getting rid of daylight savings time and staying at the same time as Arizona is where we don’t have to fool with the clocks,” said Tom Sanchez of Redding.
Assemblymember Kansen Chu authored Prop 7. Action News Now reached out to his office to find out what happened after.
In a statement, Assemblymember Chu said, “I share the disappointment with other Californians that we will be switching our clocks once again this November after passing Proposition 7.”
“I have been working in Sacramento to pass AB 7 to place our state on permanent daylight saving time. Unfortunately, the California State Senate Committee on Energy, Utilities, and Communications did not bring AB 7 up for a vote and the bill died."
People tell Action News Now they're not looking forward to turning the clocks backward.
“It changes your body rhythm,” said Diane Sunderland. “Going to work and everything you do, it just changes.”
But others are looking forward to that extra hour of sleep.
“I think it in the fall it's nice having that extra hour of sleep,” said Ethan Cretion of Redding.
