Move clocks ahead an hour on Sunday

by: ,

Don't forget to move your clocks ahead one hour before heading to bed Saturday night. Day-light Saving Time begins Sunday, March 11, at 2 a.m.

During DST, clocks are turned forward an hour, effectively moving an hour of daylight from the morning to the evening.

If you feel the time change is occuring earlier than usual, you are right. On Aug. 8, 2005, President George W. Bush signed the Energy Policy Act of 2005, which changed the time change dates for Daylight Saving Time in the U.S.

Beginning in 2007, DST will begin on the second Sunday in March and end the first Sunday in November. The Secretary of Energy will report the impact of this change to Congress. Congress retains the right to resume the 2005 Daylight Saving Time schedule once the Department of Energy study is complete.
