Constitution’s Supremacy Clause prohibits States from establishing laws that are contrary to Federal Laws.
Florida, Washington, and Tennessee have all passed and signed legislation adopting permanent Daylight Saving Time.

Finally, the Governor would need to sign it.
There are only 13 months left in the current session. The possibility of a “Fast Track” to permanent Dailylight Savings is slim.
