The final week of standard time

We spring ahead one hour to Daylight Saving Time this Sunday, March 13 at 2 a.m.
Ever since March 2007, we spring ahead one hour to Eastern Daylight Time on the second Sunday in March and fall back one hour to Eastern Standard Time on the first Sunday in November.

 

An energy bill in 2005 instituted extending daylight saving time by four weeks starting in March 2007.  Prior to 2007, Daylight Saving Time started on the first Sunday in April and ended on the last Sunday in October.
