It seems to be official in Catamarca and San Juan as well now, according 
to the press:
which says something like this (translated):
"The governor of the province, Eduardo Brizuela del Moral ratified, in 
official way that the time zone change that is requested from nation 
after 19th of the current month will not occur in our province because 
as we already know it does not benefit our town." 
(San Juan)
Translation: "San Juan’s provincial governor José Luis Gioja confirmed 
today [2008-10-15], that the province would not participate in the 
daylight saving schedule that was planned by the federal government."
