Argentina Bill To Cap Public Holidays
 
(Posted on Monday, March 26, 2012)

Source: Parlamentario (Buenos Aires)

A bill (proyecto de ley) has been introduce in Argentina's lower house of Congress by MP Enrique Thomas which would limit the number of national non-working public holidays in Argentina to 15 in any given year.

The aforementioned bill was drafted with wording ("dνas no laborales nacionales inamovibles, trasladables, puentes turνsticos, excepcionales o especiales") designed to cover all the various guises under which additional public holidays have been declared in recent years in Argentina (23-Dec-2011, 14-Dec-2011, 11-Dec-2010, 04-Nov-2010, 03-Nov-2010, 04-May-2010, 17-Jan-2010, 22-Dec-2009, 18-Dec-2008, 10-Dec-2008, 01-Oct-2008).

The law, if passed, would take effect on January 1, 2013.

Apparently the impetus for this bill was the recent failed attempts (22-Mar-2012 and 16-Mar-2012) to declare the entire week before Easter (Semana Santa) as non-working public holidays in Argentina.
