November 3rd is when Oregonians move the clock back an hour. But what’s that? Didn’t the legislature and governor nix Daylight Saving Time this year? As KLCC’s Brian Bull explains, yes…and no.
Senate Bill 320 was signed into law this year. It keeps most of Oregon in year-round Daylight Saving Time, meaning no switching hours. It affects the whole state save for most of Malheur County, which is in the Mountain Time Zone.
Republican State Representative Bill Post of District 25 co-sponsored the legislation. He says there are conditions that must be met before it can take effect.
