HISTORY: The Uniform Time Act That Started Daylight Savings Time (DST)
As a nation, we began setting our clocks forward and back when DST officially started in 1966. The Uniform Time Act did not require all states to go along with the new legislation, but over time almost every state fell in line. The states of Arizona and Hawaii are the only states that do not currently participate in the twice-yearly time change. The US Territories of Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa and the Virgin Islands also do not change their clocks for Daylight Savings Time.
