COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTHR) - A bill introduced last week in the state legislature would keep Ohio on Daylight Saving Time for the entire year.

Called the Ohio Sunshine Protection Act, the bill would declare that Ohio has opted out of changing its clocks and remain on Daylight Saving Time year-round,

The measure would require approval from the entire House and Senate and a signature by the governor as well as federal approval before it could take effect.
