DAYLIGHT TIME TIME TO BEGIN SUNDAY, APRIL 5

 DAYLIGHT TIME TIME TO BEGIN SUNDAY, APRIL 5
 WASHINGTON, March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Daylight saving time will


begin for most of the nation at 2 a.m. Sunday, April 5, and Americans will start getting an extra hour of daylight in the evening.
 Under provisions of the Uniform Time Act, daylight saving time is observed from the first Sunday in April to the last Sunday in October. Next fall, the country will return to standard time on Sunday, Oct. 25, by moving clocks back one hour.
 The law does not require that any area observe daylight saving time. But if a state chooses to observe daylight time, it must follow the starting and ending dates set by the federal law.
 In those parts of the country that do not observe daylight time, no resetting of clocks is required. Those states and territories include Arizona, Hawaii, the part of Indiana located in the Eastern Time Zone, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and American Samoa.
