Current DST mismatch rule in USA and Mexico is affecting communities on both sides of the border.|
4 weeks of DST mismatch (3 weeks in spring and 1 week in autumn) between two border cities
Juarez (Mexico) and El Paso (TX, USA)
is a big inconvenience and headache for at least 42 thousand residents of both communities.
DST starts in El Paso, USA (second Sunday in March) 3 weeks before DST starts in Juarez, Mexico
(First Sunday in April).
DST ends in El Paso, USA (first Sunday in November) 1 week after DST ends in Juarez, Mexico
(Last Sunday in October).
There is a new initiative or intention to redeem the proposal ("frozen" in the previous legislature) to approve the new DST schedule in the municipality of Juarez, Chihuahua state (Mexico):
"….would add "in the municipality of Juarez, Chihuahua State, the DST application shall take from two hours the second Sunday in March and end at two hours the first Sunday in November."
A eso se le añadiría "en el caso del municipio de Juárez, en el estado de Chihuahua, esta aplicación surtirá efecto desde las dos horas del segundo domingo de marzo y concluirá a las dos horas del primer domingo de noviembre".
