Mexico Senate Votes November Public Holiday Date Change

Mexico's Senate has approved a bill that would move this year's Revolution Day public holiday from Monday, November 15 to Monday, November 22, 2010.

The bill, introduced last month by the President of Mexico's Senate Committee on Legislative Review, Alejandro Zapata Perogordo, would amend the 2006 revision to Article 74 of the Mexican Labour Code (2006-01-17) so that, exceptionally, in 2010, the public holiday for the Centenary of the Mexican Revolution be observed on November 22, a closer date to the historical date of November 20 (a Saturday in 2010).

This bill mirrors a similar attempt made by the Cámara de Diputados (Mexico's lower house of parliament) last year (2009-10-29) and rejected at the time by the Senate (2009-11-12). In an ironic twist, this year's Senate-approved bill now goes to the lower house for approval.
