Thanks for the heads-up. As I understand it, the bill is not yet law and 
would have to pass through more legislative hoops to become law. In that 
sense it is like a similar effort to abolish DST in California, which 
has also passed a committee vote 
That being said, the Egyptian movement to abolish DST seems more likely 
to succeed than the Californian one. We should definitely keep an eye on 
Egypt, as it's quite possible that I jumped the gun in assuming that the 
planned change on July 7 at 24:00 will actually happen.
