Daylight Time

By  | 

House and Senate negotiators have reached an agreement that could have us springing forward earlier and falling back later.

The conferees have agreed to extend daylight-saving time in an effort to conserve energy, but not to the extent the House approved in April.

House and Senate negotiators for an energy bill agreed to begin daylight-saving time three weeks earlier, on the second Sunday in March, and extend it by one week to the first Sunday in November. The House bill would have added a month in the spring and another in the fall.

Lawmakers say they hope to complete the energy legislation next week.
