Sorry, but that reading doesn't sound plausible to me. I can't imagine a law 
intending to refer to 24:59.9999... on Sunday (i.e., 00:59.9999.... on Monday) 
talking about the transition occurring the day after Saturday. But perhaps 
someone can dig up a newspaper in the affected area that explains things clearly 
to the general populace.
