Aligned with the national government, he questioned the “benefits” that CABA received in said resolution of the Supreme Court of Justice.
the governor of Santa Fe He not only questioned the head of government of CABA, Horacio Rodríguez Larreta, but also referred to the Metropolitan Area of Buenos Aires (AMBA): “The AMBA does a lot of harm, the AMBA look does a bad thing, they are a vacuum cleaner of resources over the entire productive territory of the country and, in particular, of inside”.
He also said about the ruling of the Supreme Court that “a good part of the foundations to which the provinces of Santa Fe, Córdoba and San Luis argued, they were favored in a dispute against the Nation”. “We do not get attached to this discussion of the situation (Nation against CABA), we want to continue discussing the substance,” he asserted about his Province.

It was thus that the president met again with some Peronist governors after the meeting held on Thursday at Casa Rosada, from which the decision arose to pay with TX31 bonds the co-participation funds that the Supreme Court demands be granted to CABA.
The Supreme Court ruling
During the government of former President Mauricio Macri, the co-participation value received by CABA rose from 1.4% to 3.5%. Then in 2020, already in the government of Alberto Fernández, it was decided to decrease said value. For this action, the head of government of CABA, Rodríguez Larreta, launched two complaints against the Nation.
The Supreme Court of Justice took sides in the cases and ruled that the amount received for co-participation from CABA be increased again to 2.95% (compared to the 3.5% requested by Rodríguez Larreta). Finally, the Fernández government complied with the court order and decided to pay the amount requested through the use of TX31 bonds.
