By Hugh Bronstein and Alejandro Lifschitz BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - Argentina's new plan to skirt U.S. The government has sent a bill to Congress that would replace its New York intermediary bank with state-run Banco Nacion, the latest move in a years-old legal chess game between Argentina and its "holdout" creditors who refused to participate in the restructuring. Argentina's black market peso reeled on the news, falling 2.0 percent to an all-time low 13.5 to the U.S. The legal deadlock is squeezing Argentina's foreign reserves and the availability of dollars in the market by preventing the economically ailing country from issuing international bonds.Last month, Argentina defaulted on an estimated $29 billion of its restructured debt after a New York court blocked an interest payment of $539 million.
