Argentina February 20 Public Holiday Gazetted
 
(Posted on Wednesday, January 9, 2013)

Source: Boletín Oficial de la República Argentina (Buenos Aires)

The bill to declare a one-off non-working public holiday in Argentina on Wednesday, February 20, 2013, recently approved by Argentina's lower house of Congress (Cámara de Diputados) and Argentina's Senate, has now been officially gazetted (Ley Nº 26.837).

The aforementioned one-article law ("Desígnase el día 20 de febrero de 2013, Día de la Batalla de Salta, como feriado extraordinario en todo el territorio nacional") officially confirms last year's (30-Nov-2012), approval into law by the Senate of the bill approved earlier (22-Nov-2012) by the lower house of Congress (Cámara de Diputados) to declare a one-off non-working public holiday in Argentina on Wednesday, February 20, 2013.

That bill had originally surfaced as 2 separate bills, one last spring (01-Apr-2012) declaring February 20, 2013, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Argentina to commemorate the "Día de la Batalla de Salta", augmented earlier this month (04-Nov-2012), by a bill to declare a one-off non-working public holiday in Argentina on Thursday, January 31, 2012, to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the initial meeting of the Argentine Contituting Assembly.

Note that Argentina's Senate recently (20-Dec-2012) also approved another bill that declares a one-off non-working public holiday in Argentina on January 31, 2013, to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the initial meeting of the Argentine Contituting Assembly ("conmemoración del bicentenario de la Asamblea General Constituyente de 1813").
