TOPEKA, Kan. — Imagine no longer “falling back” or “springing ahead.” Imagine a world where you don’t have to figure out how to set your microwave or dashboard clock.

If you live in Kansas, imagine it’s a day that may be closer than you think.

A bill before state lawmakers would exempt Kansas from daylight saving time. Beginning after 2 a.m. on Nov. 3, 2019, there would be no more clock-turning twice a year. The state would remain on standard time.
