3 Then Congress said, "Let there be light"; and there was light.
4 And Congress saw the light, that it was good; and Congress divided the light from the darkness.
5 Congress called the light Day, and the darkness They called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.
"Extending daylight-saving time makes sense, especially with skyrocketing energy costs...The more daylight we have, the less electricity we use."
