MONTGOMERY, Ala. – The Alabama House of Representatives approved a measure that could make Daylight Saving Time year-round.

The bill already passed the Senate without a dissenting vote and now heads to the desk of Governor Kay Ivey.

Congress would need to approve a federal bill before this measure would go into effect.

According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, 15 states have enacted legislation or passed a resolution to provide for year-round daylight saving time, if Congress were to allow such a change.
