WASHINGTON — U.S. Rep. Madison Cawthorn , R-Hendersonville, introduced the SPF Act on the House floor over the March 13-14 weekend, with the intent of amending the Uniform Time Act by making Daylight Savings Time permanent.

In an official statement, dated March 16, Cawthorn, who represents the 11th District, highlighted what he termed the importance of common sense reforms that place personal liberty back into the hands of American citizens.

“The SPF Act is just one of many common sense bills I plan on dropping. This act finally ends the yearly forwards/backwards time-change cycle. “

He added, “Arbitrarily changing the time each year makes no sense, and results in significant economic burdens for businesses, including those in NC-11. It’s time that our government did something common sense for once.

“For too long the federal government has interfered in the lives of working Americans with no purpose, and with little benefit. It’s time to roll back superfluous governmental regulations and limit government to its sole task: safeguarding the rights of its citizens,” Cawthorn asserted.
