The Senate Friday approved a $14.5 billion energy bill that contains a provision to expand Daylight Saving Time in 2007. Since the bill has cleared the House the measure moves on to the president for his signature. Reuters reported he is expected to sign the bill.
DST would start on the second Sunday in March, from the current first Sunday in April and extend one week to the first Sunday in November. Proponents say the change will save energy as more daylight would extend later in the afternoon; the drawback for AM daytimers is they'd sign on later in the morning for a longer period than they do now.
