Daylight-Saving Time tonight March 10, 2013, turn that clock ahead one hour

Daylight-Saving Time begins at 2 a.m. Sunday March 10, 2013. So don't forget to set your clocks one hour ahead before you go to bed tonight.

It will last until 2:00 AM on Sunday, November 3.

Keep in mind that some smart phones are set up to automatically adjust for daylight-saving time, so make sure you don't change the time if your phone is going to automatically do it.

In February Sen. Darren Soto filed a bill that would mandate that Florida keep its clock in daylight-saving time year-round.

The Orlando Democrat said he sponsored the bill (SB 734) because he gets frustrated that it gets dark earlier during the winter. The bill is called the "Sunshine Protection Act."

According to the National Institute of Standards and Technology Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and most of Arizona do not observe DST. In Arizona, the Navajo Indian territories do observe DST.
