Argentina Mulls June 15 Public Holiday

The Education Commission of Argentina's Lower House (Cámara de Diputados), has forwarded to the floor for further consideration, a bill which would declare June 15, 2018, as a one-off (por única vez) non-working public holiday in Argentina.

The impetus for the aforementioned bill to declare June 15, 2018, as a one-off (por única vez) non-working public holiday in Argentina is to mark the centenary of Argentina's University reform.

Under the preceding Kirchner administration, such commemorative, one-off ("sólo sería feriado en el año XXXX en forma excepcional") non-working public holidays became quite common, as Monday, May 24, 2010, was declared a one-off (por única vez) non-working public holiday to coincide with Argentina's bicentennial (04-May-2010, 31-Mar-2010, 11-Mar-2010, 25-Jan-2010), Monday, February 27, 2012, was declared a one-off public holiday in Argentina to commemorate the bicentennial of the creation and first pledge of allegiance to the national flag (23-Dec-2011, 01-Dec-2011, 27-Jul-2011), Monday, September 24, 2012, was declared a one-off public holiday in Argentina to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the battle of Tucumán (11-Sep-2012, 26-Mar-2012, 25-May-2012, 29-Jun-2012, 10-Aug-2012, 06-Sep-2012), Monday, January 31, 2013, was declared a one-off public holiday in Argentina to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the initial meeting of the Argentine Constituting Assembly (15-Jan-2013, 20-Dec-2012 and 14-Dec-2012, 01-Apr-2012, 04-Nov-2012), and Wednesday, February 20, 2013, was declared a one-off public holiday in Argentina to commemorate the "Día de la Batalla de Salta" (05-Jun-2015, 09-Jan-2013, 30-Nov-2012, 22-Nov-2012, 01-Apr-2012).

However, ever since the start of the Macri administration (13-Dec-2015), such initiatives have dwindled (05-Aug-2017), and none has come to fruition.
