Argentina Bill To Add 2 Public Holidays
 
(Posted on Sunday, April 1, 2012)

The new laws committee of Argentina's lower house of Congress (Comisión de Legislación General de la Cámara de Diputados) is about to consider a bill that would add 2 one-off public holidays in the coming year.

As per the text of the aforementioned bill, a one-off non-working public holiday would be declared in Argentina on Monday, September 24, 2012, to commemorate the bicentennial of the battle of Tucumán ("feriado nacional, por única vez, en conmemoración del bicentenario de la Batalla de Tucumán").

Then, early next year, a one-off non-working public holiday would be declared in Argentina on Sunday, February 3, 2013, to commemorate the bicentennial of the battle of San Lorenzo ("Día del Bicentenario del combate de San Lorenzo").

Interestingly, the bill to declare Monday, September 24, 2012, and Sunday, February 3, 2013, as one-off non-working public holidays in Argentina surfaces the week after another bill (26-Mar-2012) was introduced n Argentina's lower house of Congress which would limit the number of national non-working public holidays in Argentina to 15 in any given year.

Other, less publicized (and unlikely to get very far) bills are in the pipeline to declare June 25, 2012, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Argentina to commemorate the centennial of the "Grito de Alcorta", and to declare February 20, 2013, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Argentina to commemorate the "Día de la Batalla de Salta".
