Daylight Saving Time 2024: Here’s what you need to know

Clocks across the Colorado will change to daylight saving time in less than a month.

We will “spring forward” one hour at 2 a.m. on March 10, causing most people to lose an hour of sleep. It won’t be until Nov. 3, the first Sunday of November, when we “fall back” to standard time.

Even though daylight saving time has been around for more than 50 years, most people really dislike the twice-yearly time change. Lawmakers have tried multiple times to pass legislation to make daylight saving time permanent across all states.

The Sunshine Protection Act, a federal bill initially proposed by Republican Florida legislators Sen. Marco Rubio and Rep. Vern Buchanan in 2018, has yet to be approved by Congress despite numerous efforts.

Congress is the only one that can change the observance period for daylight saving time. Since 2015, at least 45 states proposed bills to change their observance of DST, according to the Congressional Research Service.

In Colorado, the General Assembly passed legislation in 2022 that would set Colorado’s clocks to daylight saving time year-round. Gov. Jared Polis (D) signed it, but the law can only take effect if: A federal law was enacted that allows states to remain on daylight saving time year-round

Daylight saving time officially starts on Sunday, March 10 at 2 a.m.
