Why The Sunshine Protection Act Makes the Most Sense

Imagine a world where everyone wakes up feeling refreshed every morning. They get up and tackle their daily responsibilities with a renewed sense of energy and enthusiasm, and at the end of the day, they have time to pursue their passions. They go to sleep feeling accomplished and relaxed. This world may sound like a distant fantasy to some, but the Sunshine Protection Act could make it a reality.
