Daylight Saving Time Expands With Passing Of Energy Bill

Starting in 2007, Daylight Saving Time will be longer by four weeks.

The change is part of the energy bill that President Bush signed Monday in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The measure supports new energy efficient technologies such as hybrid cars.

"The Energy Policy Act of 2005 is going to help every American who drives to work, every family that pays a power bill, and every small business owner hoping to expand," said President Bush.

Under the bill, Daylight Saving Time will begin three weeks earlier, on the second Sunday in March and will end a week later, the first Sunday in November.
