Argentina's Senate has approved into law the bill recently approved 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.

Late last week (2012-11-22), Argentina's lower house of Congress (Cámara de Diputados) had approved a bill to declare one-off non-working public holidays in Argentina on January 31 and February 20, 2013.

That bill had originally surfaced as 2 separate bills, one last spring (2012-04-01) 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 (2012-11-04), 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.
