This time shall apply to all public schools, institutions of higher learning, agencies, departments, and political subdivisions of the state.

(c) The Secretary of State shall monitor the enactment of any federal law that permits the year round observation of daylight saving time. If the law is enacted, the secretary shall send  written notice of the effective date to the Governor, who will announce the enacted law to all affected parties.
