Americans would no longer need to change their clocks twice a year under a bipartisan proposal that passed the Senate on Tuesday.

Senator Marco Rubio’s legislation would make Daylight Saving Time, which most states observe for eight months out of 12, permanent across the country. This year, it began on March 13 and will last until November 6.
