Americans reset the clocks on Sunday

Daylight saving time is the period between spring and autumn, when most American clocks are set one hour earlier than standard time or winter time. The Americans last changed their watches on Sunday. Winter lasts four months in most parts of the United States.

The proposal now goes to the House of Representatives, where the Energy and Trade Committee held a hearing last week to discuss possible legislation. Committee Chairman Frank Ballon said in his opening remarks that he agreed that the time change should come to an end. However, he did not decide whether summer or winter was the right way to go.
