The project to reduce gas rates in cold areas has already entered the Senate

The Cold Zones Bill, which promotes a reduction in gas rates for localities with low temperatures, entered the Senate after it was approved by Deputies last night. The initiative was turned today to the Mining, Energy and Fuels, and Budget and Finance commissions.

The presidents of both commissions, the sanjuanino Jose Uñac, and the Cordoba Carlos Caserio, respectively, together with the authorities of the Frente de Todos bloc, this weekend will seek to coordinate the parliamentary agenda so that it can be debated in the coming days.

Both commissions are headed by senators from the ruling party, so it is discounted that the file will be treated quickly and, in the best of cases, that it will be converted into law on Wednesday 23 or Thursday 24.

The project modifies an article of the Budget Law 2021 to benefit more than three million inhabitants of towns in the provinces of Buenos Aires, Santa Fe, Córdoba, Mendoza, San Juan, San Luis, Salta and Tucumán in which they are registered low temperatures.

Among these, the department of Tafí del Valle; that is, to El Mollar, Tafí del Valle, Amaicha del Valle and Colalao del Valle, among other places in the department.

Residents of these areas will have a reduction of between 30% and 50% in gas bills or in the costs of the bottle, according to the economic situation of each sector, according to one of the articles of the initiative.

The project reduces by around 50% the rates for beneficiaries of the Universal Child Allowance (AUH) and the Pregnancy Allowance, non-contributory pensions and retirees -up to four minimum wages-, of the social monotax, users who receive insurance unemployment and private house employees.

Those who are exempt from the payment of ABL or local taxes of the same nature or those who have a life pension as veterans of the South Atlantic War may also have this benefit.

With respect to the rest of the residential users, the differential rate will imply a reduction of 30% of the corresponding gas bill.

The project extends the Residential Gas Consumption Trust Fund for 10 years (Article 75, Law 25,565) and increases the number of departments and localities throughout the country with low temperatures included in this benefit.
