Daylight time all year? Not this year

If you’re still adjusting to the time change that kicked in Sunday, you’re not alone.

Oregon Passed a Permanent Daylight Savings Bill, But We’ll Still Be Falling Back This Year

Despite the passage of Oregon Senate Bill 320, which is intended to put Oregon on daylight saving time permanently, clocks will still be “falling back” an hour in November.  The bill itself was passed and signed into law this June, and will come into effect January 2020.
