In the end, it's a "compromise," at least for now

This just in:
Reps. Upton & Markey (the original sponsors of the Daylight Savings Time [DST] extension proposal) offered a compromise amendment shrinking the scope of weeks of the DST extension to one week in the fall and three weeks in the Spring, which the House members supported.

However, it doesn't take effect until after the Energy Dept. has several months to undertake a study of whether this will actually save energy and then explicitly reserves that Congress may act to reinstate DST as it was previously.

Sen Craig supported this "compromise" amendment and it was accepted by the Conferees.
