    SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Oregon Gov. Kate Brown endorsed a growing movement to make daylight savings time permanent.

    When asked if she was in favor of a proposal to abolish the yearly time shift, the Democrat told reporters on Thursday: "Hell yes!"

    "I think everyone's done with the time change," she added.

    Washington and California are also considering shifting to a permanent daylight savings time. Florida became the first state to approve such a change.

    Any state law extending daylight savings time would have to be approved by Congress.

    Brown noted that this was one of the few issues where she agrees with President Donald Trump. The president tweeted earlier this week that daylight savings time year-round would be "O.K. with me!"
