Glacier Preservation Law Modifications Proposed

A bill (No. 4129/15) has been proposed in the Senate to modify the Law for Preservation of Glaciers and the Periglacial Environment (No. 26.639) to require the competent authority within each jurisdiction to semiannually inform the environment committees within both houses of Congress on the progress and obstacles to the development of the national glacier inventory. While the deadline to complete the inventory was set for March 2011, this process has not yet started.
