Now that we've jumped ahead by an hour yesterday (March 10th) for Daylight Saving Time, there are lawmakers in many states across the country who would like it stay this way all the time.

Daylight Saving Time is currently observed for eight months -- two-thirds of the year -- from the second Sunday in March until the first Sunday in November.
