The Israeli government today adopted a proposal by Minister of Interior
Eli Yishai to shorten the period of Daylight Savings Time for the year
2002 (only -- the dates for 2003 and 2004 are, so far, unaffected).

The proposed date to Daylight Savings Time is September 13, 2002 instead
of the current date: October 7, 2002.  The hour of changeover has not
yet been decided.

However, both the date and the proposal to change the ending time are not
final until they receive Knesset approval since they have to override the
law passed in July 2000.

I will make another announcement to the list when there is a concrete date
and when the proposal passes both the Ministry of Interior Knesset Committee
and the Knesset plenum.
