When does Daylight Saving Time begin?

Spring forward Spring forward

"There are a lot of pros to daylight saving time, but Im not hearing much discussion in Florida about the cons".

Todd said at the time federal law allows states to establish their time zone as long as the state covers two time zones such as Tennessee does.

It keeps Florida on daylight saving time year-round. The Sarasota Republican also says the "Sunshine Protection Act " could boost the economy as winter sunsets would be about 6:30 p.m., not 5:30. Florida is seeking to join Hawaii and most of Arizona as states that dont change times, so this may be the last time you have to move your clocks as the Sunshine State attempt to have more sunshine during the day all year long. Enacted on March 19, 1918, by the USA government as a way to conserve coal during World War I, the practice fell by the wayside fairly quickly. "I can't tell you how many people have come up to me who have said even my high school-age kid, it's hard to get him up in the morning when we fall back the clocks". The result of such concerns has been no daylight-saving time in some countries.

It makes sense to want more daylight hours when the weather is nice and people are able to be outside and enjoy it.

Move the clock up four years, and once again a Tennessee state representative has failed in his attempt to save residents of the Volunteer State from having to participate in the twice-yearly ritual of setting the clocks as the seasons change.

But Ferrari and Red Bull Racing have shown progress and again look to be the Brackley-based team's main challengers. Coming off four consecutive double world championships, Mercedes are certainly the team to beat in F1 2018.


Last fall, legislators in New England considered moving their states to Atlantic Time (one hour ahead of the Eastern time zone) and doing away with daylight saving time. "Why we adjust twice a year, I don't understand". If a state chooses to observe Daylight Saving Time, it must begin and end on federally mandated dates.

In 1966, Congress approved the Uniform Time Act, which included a standard requirement on daylight saving time.

- In November and December, Miami Dolphins games would start at 2 p.m. instead of the traditional 1 p.m. slot to coincide with the league schedule of 1 p.m. ET starts.

Given its strong association with Daylight Saving Time, perhaps it's not surprising Pennsylvania hasn't had any recent proposals to opt out.

- Some mornings, it will still be dark or close to dark at 8 a.m. "To change it, you have to make a tradeoff".
