Washington, D.C. —Today, U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) released the following statement after Governor Inslee signed legislation into law to make daylight saving time permanent in Washington state.  

“Thanks to the determination of state leaders like Representative Riccelli and local stakeholders, I’m glad to see Washington state take a major step toward adopting permanent daylight saving time to help improve public safety, health, and wellbeing. I’m ready to get to work in the Senate to make permanent daylight saving time a reality in our state, including working across the aisle on legislation to expand daylight saving time for the full year and exploring other options to ensure our federal laws work for Washington state families.”
