RALEIGH, N.C. — The plan to add two more months of daylight saving is meeting mixed reaction in the Triangle.
House and Senate negotiators for an energy bill agreed to begin daylight-saving time three weeks earlier, on the second Sunday in March, and extend it by one week to the first Sunday in November.
Advocates say the move could generate economic growth because more people would get out at night.
Meanwhile, critics are raising safety concerns because school children will have more dark mornings at the bus stop. Airlines argue the change could wreak havoc on international schedules.
Lawmakers said they hope to complete the energy legislation next week.
