Florida considers nixing Daylight Saving Time

This weekend could mark the last Daylight Saving Time in Florida.

Lawmakers just passed a bill to spring forward-and stay there.

But it still needs the governor's signature.

Even if the governor approves the bill, Congress will have to get involved.

Lawmakers will have to agree to exempt Florida from the Uniform Time Act of 1966.

Two states currently stay in standard time all year round-Arizona and Hawaii.

Meantime, those of us still practicing Daylight Saving will lose an hour of sleep early Sunday morning.
