Time's up: The economic case against daylight-saving time

Sunday, November 5, 2017 - Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 am.

Turning back the clock Sunday pushes sunrise and sunset back an hour.

Under the act, states and territories can opt out of daylight saving. But this also means that the sun will be setting earlier and earlier in the afternoon in the coming weeks. So, if you have the chance to sleep in, you have just gained an extra hour of a good night's sleep.

That's what happened in 2007 when daylight time was extended in the U.S.by a month in the spring and by a few days in the fall.

1945-1966 - There is no federal law regarding Daylight Saving Time.

Do not forget to turn back the clock this weekend.

Some 70 countries around the world use daylight saving time.

Nov. 5 marks the first Sunday of November and, therefore, at 2 a.m. Since it became a law, any state has been allowed to opt out, as long as it passed a state law to do so, something only Arizona and Hawaii now have in place. It has been reported that MA is now on its way to joining these areas and making changing the clocks a thing of the past.

Among some critics of time changes, there is a preference to observe daylight-saving time year-round (as opposed to either changing the clocks twice a year or observing standard time year-round).

This tradition of springing forward and falling back is in place for most of the US, with the exception of several places, including Hawaii and most of Arizona. This is also where you can find more information about timekeeping and daylight saving in the U.S. For example, if going to bed at 11 p.m., turn your clocks to 10 p.m.
