Story & Information - Daylight Saving Time, Early Introduction, US Legislation
Summer time has been used in the USA and many Western nations since the First World War, when Germany and Austria took time to generate electricity and began summer time on 30 April 1916 at 23:00 by moving the watch hand one clock to the following October.
Australia and Newfoundland began using DST in 1917. A " Act to Maintain Natural Light and Providing Default Time for the United States " was passed on March 19, 1918. See Act] Both default time zone and DST were fixed to start on 31 March 1918. DST was monitored for seven-month periods in 1918 and 1919.
Summer time became a domestic policy choice and resumed in some states, such as Massachusetts and Rhode Island, and in some towns, such as New York, Philadelphia and Chicago. President Franklin Roosevelt introduced a year-round summer time, the "war time", from February 9, 1942 to September 30, 1945 during the Second World War.
From 1945 to 1966, there was no national summer time legislation, so states and communities were free to decide whether or not to adhere to summer time and when it began and ended. Due to different regional practices and legislation, broadcasters and transport operators had to release new timetables each time a state or city began or ended summer time.
President Nixon on January 4, 1974, ratified the Emergency Daylight Saving Time Energy Conservation Act of 1973. From 6 January 1974, when the Summer Time Act came into force, watches were introduced. Congress changed the Act on 5 October 1974 and the Standard Time came back on 27 October 1974.
Summer time recommenced on 23 February 1975 and ended on 26 October 1975. Inkonsistente use in the USA at the beginning of the sixties was the adherence to summer time quite consistent, with a conglomeration of time observations and no consensus on when to switch them. However, the peasants were against such unity.
The state and municipal administrations were a mixture, according to the circumstances at the time. Standardisation endeavours were supported by a transport sector organisation, the Committee for Time Uniformity. Asking the whole country about the time observations of the phone callers, they found the whole country rather confused. After the Time Uniformity Committee gathered popular backing, the Time Uniformity Committee's objective was achieved, but only after it discovered and revealed that on the 35 mile section of the Route 2 between Moundsville, W.V., and Steubenville, Ohio, every coach rider and passenger had to undergo seven changes!
Until 1966, about 100 million Americans adhered to summer time according to their own rules and habits. With the Uniform Time Act of 1966 (15 U.S. Code Section 260a), passed on April 12, 1966 by President Lyndon Johnson and incorporated into public policy 89-387, summer time began on the last Sunday in April and ended on the last Sunday in October.
Every state that wanted to be exempted from summer time could do so by means of a state act. In 1966, the United Nations Universal Time Act introduced a system of unified (within each time zone) summer time savings in the U.S. and its properties, freeing only those states where legislators had elected to keep the whole state on normal time.
During 1972, Congress amended the Act to stipulate that if a State was in two or more time zoned, the State could liberate the part of the State that was in one time zoned, while stipulating that the part of the State in another time zoned would monitor summer time.
Federal Act 1986 was changed to introduce summer time on the first Sunday in April. According to the 1986 laws, summer time in the USA began at 2:00 a.m. on the first Sunday in April and ended at 2:00 a.m. on the last Sunday in October.
Under the 2005 U.S. Summer Time Extension Act, the 2005 U.S. U.S. Energy Policy Act began to extend summer time in 2007, although Congress maintained the right to return to the 1986 Act if the amendment proved not to be popular or if significant reductions in power consumption were not achieved. From 2007 Summer time in the USA In most Western European states, summer time is applied, even in those that are members of the EU:
The adherence to summer time elsewhere in the word varies greatly. Refer to Global Summer Time.
