Autumn brings all kinds of changes to the Bluegrass State: cooler temperatures, basketball season and a change in the clock.
When does Daylight Saving Time start?
Kentucky will "fall back" from daylight saving time in the early morning of Nov. 6, and we'll turn time back an hour, gaining an hour of sleep. Days will have more light in the morning, and events like sunrise and sunset will be an hour earlier.
Kentucky introduced daylight saving time in 1918 as part of a national push to conserve electricity during World War I, and the tradition has stuck since then.
What states don't have Daylight Saving Time?
Some states have opted out of observing daylight saving time. Arizona made the change to observe standard time in 1968, although the Navajo Nation continues to fall back during later months. Hawaii is on its own time, Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time, and the sun rises and sets around the same time all year.
Are we getting rid of Daylight Saving Time?
Earlier this year, the Senate passed the Sunshine Protection Act making "daylight saving time the new, permanent standard time," according to the bill.If the act gets passed to become law, it would go into effect on Nov. 5, 2023. "States with areas exempt from daylight saving time may choose the standard time for those areas," the site said.
