* Section 1. AS 44.12 is amended by adding a new section to read:
Article 5. Standard Time.
Sec. 44.12.400. Exemption from daylight saving time. Under 15 U.S.C.
260a, this state exempts itself and all of its political subdivisions
from observation of advanced time, also known as daylight saving time,
between 2:00 a.m. on the second Sunday in March and 2:00 a.m. on the
first Sunday in November in each calendar year, and the entire state and
all of its political subdivisions shall observe the standard time that
is otherwise applicable during that time period.
So if the US Congress extends DST to be the from the second Sunday in
February until the first Sunday in December them Alaska will observe
standard time in January, DST in part of Feb and Mar, then standard time
through spring and summer, and then DST in November, then back to
I wonder if there is reason why the bill doesn't exempt Alaska from DST,
