Indiana counties change time zones
Jan 19, 2006 3:14 PM
The Department of Transportation (DOT) has announced a final rule that will change the clock for eight of 17 Indiana counties seeking to move to the Central time zone, according to DOT information.
The Indiana counties of Daviess, Dubois, Knox, Martin, Perry, Pike, Pulaski, and Starke will move from the Eastern to Central time zone beginning April 2, when the nation switches to daylight saving time.
Nine other counties that asked the Department to make the change, including Carroll, Cass, Fulton, Lawrence, Marshall, Sullivan, St Joseph, Vermillion, and White, will remain in the Eastern time zone, DOT decided.
Under the Uniform Time Act of 1966, the Secretary of Transportation has the authority to set time-zone boundaries and must base decisions on the convenience of commerce.
