The shift means it's lighter earlier in the morning, and darkness on the edge of town comes sooner in the evening.

Congress has not taken any action yet.

The state passed the Sunshine Protection Act in March to keep daylight saving time year round, but it could be a while before Floridians see any changes from it.

And if there is one place in New England where the clocks are sure to be set back on time, its at the Willard House & Clock Museum in North Grafton, Mass.
