For those who hoped they would no longer need to change their clocks forward or backward will be upset to find out H.J.R. 117, a bill to allow voters to decide whether the state continues observing daylight saving time, missed its key deadline on May 22. This missed deadline caused the bill to die in the water.
“They need to leave the time alone,” Molly Woodall, community member, said. “Personally, I can’t get my internal clock straight for about a week after the change.”
According to Texas Tribune, the bill would have allowed voters to decide in November whether to keep the time change or eliminate the twice-a-year change.
However, due to its failure, the time change will continue.
