>From Zulmira:

Dear Guilherme,

In accordance with Decree 6558 of Sept. 8, 2008, summer time [HV = horario
de verão = DST] will take effect from 0:00 on Oct. 16, until 0:00 on Feb.
26, 2012. The states which will enter into summer time are RS, SC, PR, SP,
RJ, ES, MG, MT, MS, and DF [Rio Grande do Sul, Santa Catarina, Paraná, São
Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Espírito Santo, Minas Gerais, Mato Grosso, Mato
Grosso do Sul, Distrito Federal].

Thus, BA [Bahia] will not have summer time. I should clarify that summer
time depends on a Federal Decree.

Guilherme's original message:

Good day, Zulmira,

I would like to confirm whether Bahia will have summer time this year?
I would also like to know whether this depends on a federal decree?
If the answer to both questions is yes, what is the specific decree in this

Thank you,

Guilherme Bernardes Rodrigues
