You know, why don't they just make it daylight savings ALL the time? This is nonsense.
- The House had approved a two-month extension - one in the spring and the other in the fall. But that was scaled back after airline officials complained that the extension would cause problems with intentional flight schedules.
Farmers said the change would adversely affect livestock.
Some senators also questioned how much actual energy savings would be achieved.
- Upton noted that the extension means daylight-saving time will continue through Halloween, adding to safety.
"Kids across the nation will soon rejoice," he said, as they get another hour of daylight trick-or-treating.
- "The beauty of daylight-saving time is that it just makes everyone feel sunnier," Markey (ed. D-Mass.) said.
