Propositioned: Prop 7 - Voters Get the Chance to Set the Clock Back


Welcome back to Propositioned! Hosted by KFI's Kris Ankarlo, this limited series podcast is back to take a look at the 11 different propositions you'll see at the ballot box this November 6! 

Now in its third season, Propositioned is a chance for both sides on each question to make their case to you, the voter. Then you can take that information with you to the voter booth. 

In today's episode of Propositioned, Kris Ankarlo takes a look at both sides of Prop 7, a ballot measure that will allow the legislature to change California over to Daylight Saving Time permanently. 

If passed, the legislature could change Daylight Saving Time to match what it's like during March to early November. If it fails at the ballot box, people in California would continue to change their clocks twice a year as usual. 

Find out why this prop is on the ballot and get both sides in the latest episode of Propositioned!

Here's the language on the ballot for Prop 7: 

Gives Legislature ability to change daylight saving time period by two-thirds vote, if changes are consistent with federal law. Fiscal Impact: This measure has no direct fiscal effect because changes to daylight saving time would depend on future actions by the Legislature and potentially the federal government.

Here's what a YES vote means:

A YES vote on this measure means: The Legislature, with a two-thirds vote, could change daylight saving time if the change is allowed by the federal government. Absent any legislative change, California would maintain its current daylight saving time period (early March to early November).

Here's what a NO vote means:

A NO vote on this measure means: California would maintain its current daylight saving time period.
