Oregon bill ending time changes needs federal approval before being implemented.

PIONEER GRAPHIC - Daylight saving time ends this Sunday, Nov. 3.Don't forget to set your clocks back as daylight saving time comes to a close at 2 a.m. this Sunday, Nov. 3. Daylight saving time runs from the second Sunday in March, when clocks must jump forward by the 2 a.m. deadline, to the first Sunday in November, when they "fall back."

The majority of the U.S. runs on the time schedule, designed to have more daylight in the evening during the summer, though most of Hawaii and Arizona do not observe the adjusted schedule and remain on standard time all year.

The Oregon Legislature passed a bill in the spring to end the biannual changing of the clocks. That was conditioned on two things: All the states in the Pacific Time Zone must also make the change, and the federal government must approve. Efforts have been made in California, but the state's lawmakers haven't passed a bill yet.

The U.S. Congress has not approved a change, either, though it has support from some lawmakers and President Donald Trump.
