A year ago, the US Senate accidentally passed permanent Daylight Saving — so we wouldn’t change our clocks in November or ever again.

It’s sitting in the US House for passage. Congressman Ron Kind, who’s retiring after 26 years, joined La Crosse Talk PM on Thursday to talk about whether the bill will get a look.

La Crosse Talk PM airs weekdays at 5:07 p.m. Listen on the WIZM app, online here, or on 92.3 FM / 1410 AM / 106.7 FM (north of Onalaska). Find all the podcasts here or subscribe to La Crosse Talk PM wherever you get your podcasts.

Kind also hit on what the House has done to combat inflation and why he thinks Brad Pfaff is right for his job to succeed him in Wisconsin’s 3rd Congressional District, versus Republican Derrick Van Orden.

Before that, UW-La Crosse Outreach Specialist, Spencer Wilken and Rochester Mayo High School physics and engineering teacher Matt Drucker joined to recap the Bill Nye presentation that happened this week at Winona State.

Two big questions were discussed: Why are we here? And are we alone?

    He ought to talk about how as a party hack he sold out by voting yes to the incoherent Biden domestic policy.
    I hope h thoroughly enjoys his not in any way earned government pension that is lucrative.
    Almost none of the Senators or Congresspersons deserve theirs.
