Brazil Mulls New Public Holiday July 2

Posted: Friday, May 10, 2013

The Brazilian Senate has formally approved a bill which was previously passed by the Brazilian lower house and which would turn the annual, July 2, "Dia da Independência da Bahia" regional non-working public holiday into a new nationwide non-working public holiday in Brazil.

The aforementioned projeto de lei da Câmara (PLC 61/2008) now moves on to President Dilma Rousseff for signature, or not, into law.

Although July 2 is still a few weeks away, and even in the unlikely event that this bill PLC 61/2008 does get signed by President Dilma Rousseff, it would still not affect 2013 public holidays in Brazil, as announced at the beginning of this year (2013-01-04).
