Daylight-Saving Time Returns Sunday

3-31-06 - Millions of Americans will lose an hour's sleep tomorrow night as clocks are turned ahead to daylight-saving time. Other people will forget and be an hour late for church or other activities. The change occurs 2:00 a.m. Sunday.

The lost hour will return October 29th when clocks go back to standard time. Congress has passed a law changing the dates of daylight-saving time, but it doesn't take effect until 2007. Then daylight time will start three weeks earlier, March 11th, and will end one week later, November 4th.

Residents of some parts of the country can ignore all this since daylight-saving time is NOT observed in Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Marianas.
