Florida Gov. Rick Scott signed off on a measure that would let the state of Florida observe Daylight Saving Time year round. It's a bill that would allow Florida live up to its name as "The Sunshine State." Scott signed the "Sunshine Protection Act" or bill HB 1013 on Friday which would make Florida exempt from bi-annual time change. The governor claims this move will help the state's tourism industry as it would allow residents and visitors to "enjoy everything the state has to offer later in the day."   Arizona is the only state in the lower 48 that does not switch their clocks twice a year. At the moment, Arizona observes Mountain Standard Time year round. The "Sunshine Protection Act" still has to be approved by the US Senate. If approved, the bill would go into effect July 1, 2018 and the entire state of Florida would not turn their clocks back one hour this fall. This would also translate to later sunrises and sunsets from November to March across Florida. For WeatherNation: Meteorologitst Nick Merianos
