What if I like to use my daylight early rather than late or vice versa? I dont get it? Why dont we just make days longer? How about starting now everyone makes twice as much but everything doubles in cost! We are morons! :banana:

Kind of like when I run my checking account down to zero when I know there is 5 k in there! I can spend it if I want to. PSYCH! :D HB what is Indiana doing? They going forward with the rest of the world or do I get to remember slow time, fast time another year :rolleyes:

Begins in 2007. DLST will commence mid-March and end First week of November

"On August 8, 2005, President George W. Bush signed the Energy Policy Act of 2005. This Act changed the time change dates for Daylight Saving Time in the U.S. Beginning in 2007, DST will begin on the second Sunday of March and end the first Sunday of November. The Secretary of Energy will report the impact of this change to Congress. Congress retains the right to revert the Daylight Saving Time back to the 2005 time schedule once the Department of Energy study is complete."

Wasn't the time change originally put into place for farmers.

I thought I read in the paper today ALL of indiana was in the game now. I get so confused driving back and forth all summer. And I thought I finally had it figured out.

just think, if you lived in one state and worked in a bordering state.......

it'd be possible you'd have to leave home at 8:00am to make it to work at 7:00am:eek:

This happened to me the past 2 summers..... parts of the county I live in recognized day light savings time, the other parts of the county and state did not. We had what was called "slow time, fast time" out here. It was a trip to tell people not from this area about that. :rolleyes:

You'll be glad to know that this wasn't in the FAQ. :rolleyes: I'd always heard something about farmers, too. I've also read it was implemented for energy conservation.

History of Daylight Time in the U.S.
Although standard time in time zones was instituted in the U.S. and Canada by the railroads in 1883, it was not established in U.S. law until the Act of March 19, 1918, sometimes called the Standard Time Act. The act also established daylight saving time, a contentious idea then. Daylight saving time was repealed in 1919, but standard time in time zones remained in law. Daylight time became a local matter. It was re-established nationally early in World War II, and was continuously observed from 9 February 1942 to 20 September 1945. After the war its use varied among states and localities. The Uniform Time Act of 1966 provided standardization in the dates of beginning and end of daylight time in the U.S. but allowed for local exemptions from its observance. The act provided that daylight time begin on the last Sunday in April and end on the last Sunday in October, with the changeover to occur at 2 a.m. local time. During the "energy crisis" years, Congress enacted earlier starting dates for daylight time. In 1974, daylight time began on 6 January and in 1975 it began on 23 February. After those two years the starting date reverted back to the last Sunday in April. In 1986, a law was passed permanently shifting the starting date of daylight time to the first Sunday in April, beginning in 1987. The ending date of daylight time has not been subject to such changes, and has remained the last Sunday in October.
