The Chamber of deputies approved the bill to make Monday, September 17, 2007, a one-off public holiday to bridge the gap between the weekend and the annual 2-day Fiesta Patrias of September 18 and 19.

The bill was introduced last month (2007-07-11), and as the vote occurred on schedule (2007-08-03), this means that opposition to the measure is limited.

Ratification by the Senate is scheduled for later this week.
