NBC News is reporting that Congress is pushing a bill that would make daylight saving time permanent.

According to NBC News, Florida-based Senator, Marco Rubio has reintroduced the Sunshine Protection Act, which passed unanimously in the Senate last year, but stalled in the House.

Senator Rubio says this bill would end the "antiquated practice" of changing clocks twice a year, meaning daylight saving time would be no more.

According to NBC News, American Samoa, most of Arizona, Guam, Hawaii, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands do not observe daylight saving time and in turn would not be affected by this legislation.

NBC News says Daylight Saving Time was originally introduced in 1918 to save oil and electricity during World War I, but is no longer associated with energy saving.

This isn't the first time the country has experimented with changing daylight saving time.

According to NBC News, the U.S. experimented with permanent daylight saving time in 1974, but this quickly ended after eight children in Florida died in traffic accidents attributed to the change.
