Extending Daylight-Saving Time
Congress may extend daylight-saving time by two months. See this CNN story.
Aside from the basic stupidity of DST, I wonder whether they've considered the costs to the IT world. Most computers these days will automatically correct for DST, but if the time period when it is in effect changes, then a lot of systems will have incorrect times for two months, unless their operating systems are updated or users manually update the clocks.
