D.C. Bars To Stay Open Late On Start Of Daylight Saving

Play associated audio

The council has passed an emergency bill allowing bars to stay open an extra hour (until 4 a.m.) for the beginning of daylight saving time, March 13.

Some bar owners have complained that they lose money on daylight saving day because they lose an hour of business due to the time change.

Bars hoping to stay open that extra hour will be charged a $100 fee. However, police will be able to block a bar from staying open if it deems it dangerous to do so.

While some on the council questioned why they were taking up this issue and why the measure is an "emergency" -- because daylight saving happens every year -– it still passed by an 11-1 margin.
