Today's WSJ, p. B4, unbylined, "New Daylight Plan is Cut by One Month."
"Under pressure from some business interests, a conference committee
working on a compromise energy bill has cut by half a proposed two-month
extension of daylight savings time and put off the change until March 2007.
"The new plan would advance daylight savings time from the first Sunday
of April to the second Sunday in March and extend it an additional week, to
the first Sunday in November. The compromise includes a proviso that if the
Department of Energy finds serious problems with the measure, which is
intended to save electricity use, Congress would have the option to revert
back to the current period."
