Argentina: New Tourist Fee - Postponed or Not?

I just learned that, as of January 1, 2009, tourists visiting Argentina were to be charged a new entry fee when they arrive at the airport. The fee is currently $132 and, once paid, is good for 10 years.

Then I read that the fee has been postponed because of the global drop in tourism. First it was supposed to be postponed until February, then until March.

I have not been able to find any current information on this, even with a visit to the Argentina Consulate web site.

Anyone have recent information on this?
