Puerto Rico 2017-2018 Public Holidays Amended

Puerto Rico's Senate has approved, and sent to Governor Ricardo Rosselló Nevares for his signature, the "Proyecto de ley de la Cámara 938" which cancels the annual public holiday of Puerto Rico on July 25 (Día de la Constitución del Estado Libre Asociado) and replaces it with a new annual non-working public holiday, the "Día de la Ciudadanía Americana".

The aforementioned change to the July 25 annual public holiday of Puerto Rico thus amends the previously-announced 2017 (11-Jun-2016) and 2018 (24-Mar-2017) lists of Puerto Rico's public sector holidays, both of which follow the "Proyecto del Senado 1113", signed by he Governor of Puerto Rico, Alejandro García Padilla, 3 years ago (29-Jul-2014), slightly amended a year later (21-Oct-2015), and which immediately reduced the number of annual non-working public sector holidays in Puerto Rico, by lumping 4 of the annual non-working public sector holidays of Puerto Rico into one, the "Día de los Próceres Puertorriqueños" (29-Jul-2014, 23-Jul-2014, 19-Jul-2014, 01-Jul-2014, 22-May-2014, 12-May-2014 and 19-Mar-2014).

As always (11-Jun-2016, 06-May-2015, 26-Oct-2014, 29-Mar-2014, 14-Sep-2013, 19-Jun-2012, 26-Jul-2011, 05-Apr-2010, and 10-Aug-2009), the private sector benefits from far fewer public holidays than the public sector. Banks usually follow the public sector holidays, except in cases when these fall on a Sunday.
