The proposal will be tabled at today's Cabinet Meeting and is expected
to be brought before the Knesset for First Reading tomorrow. In order
for the proposal to become law, it needs to pass both Second and Third
readings, but the government has indicated that it will be brought before
the Knesset for the final readings prior to the Knesset's summer recess
so that the changes will take effect in September thus extending the
end date of the 2013 Daylight Saving Time.
I will update the list as the legislation advances.
