03/08/2006, U.S.A. - "Energy Policy Act of 2005: Summary and Analysis of Enacted Provisions", CRS Report for Congress

The Energy Policy Act of 2005 (P.L. 109-58), signed by President Bush on August 8, 2005, was the first omnibus energy legislation enacted in more than a decade. Spurred by rising energy prices and growing dependence on foreign oil, the new energy law was shaped by competing concerns about energy security, environmental quality, and economic growth.
Daylight Savings (Sec. 110). Starting in 2007, daylight saving time will begin three or four weeks earlier (the second Sunday in March) and end one week later (the first Sunday in November). This is expected to reduce energy used for night-time electric lighting. A report to Congress on energy savings is required nine months after implementation begins.
