Changes to Daylight Saving Time

This weekend, we change our clocks back as we hit the unofficial start of winter. Next year, though, daylight saving time will last a little longer. Last year, as part of the Energy Policy Act of 2005, P.L. 109-58, s.110, Congress changed daylight saving time beginning in 2007. Next year, the start of daylight saving time will move from the first Sunday of April to the second Sunday of March, and the end of daylight saving time from the last Sunday of October to the first Sunday of November. For more information about daylight saving time, see When Does Daylight Time Begin and End?, and Wikipedia's Daylight Saving Time, and for more about time and its computation, see our new page Law About Time.
