CAPITOL HILL (AP) The new energy bill that's cleared the House aims to change when we spring forward and fall back. Daylight-saving time could start three weeks earlier and run through Halloween if the bill becomes law.
The Senate is expected to pass the bill Friday and send it to the White House.
The time change is supposed to save energy because people have more daylight in the evening and do not have to turn on lights.
Under the new plan, daylight-saving time will start on the second Sunday in March and end on the first Sunday in November.
The extension would begin in March 2007.
