Don't look now, but the annual spring time change is around the corner. The change from Standard Time to Daylight Saving Time (DST) will arrive at 2 a.m. Sunday.
The move will push sunset back to 6:53 p.m. Sunday, but sunrise won't come until 7:12 a.m. There will be 11 hours and 41 minutes of daylight in Princeton on Sunday, with days growing longer until the summer solstice on June 20.
If it seems like the annual change to DST used to occur later in the year, you're right. Before 2007, Daylight Saving didn't arrive until early April, but Congress changed the dates in hopes of conserving energy. Standard Time will take over Sunday, Nov. 1.
A bill has been introduced to a Kentucky House committee to adopt year-round Daylight Saving Time in the commonwealth if authorized by the Congress. It would become effective upon the first Sunday of November following passage of enabling legislation by Congress. Several other states are considering or have already passed similar legislation.
