The committee has submitted its 200+ page report and recommendations
to the Minister of Interior.  The details of the recommendations are
not yet public, but the minister is expected to make a statement
regarding submitting an ammendment to the current law to extend the
duration of Daylight Saving Time.

When more concrete details come to light, I will update the list.

The legislative process will probably take a couple of months before
becoming law.
