Rep Steve King and Sen Jim Inhofe reintroduce Official English legislation


 ProEnglish, the nation’s leading advocate for English as the official language of government, commended Congressman Steve King of Iowa and Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma for reintroducing the English Language Unity Act (H.R. 997 / S. 503) this week.  Rep. King introduced his bill on March 10th with 60 original cosponsors, which is almost double the number of original supporters in the past Congress. If passed and signed into law, H.R. 997/S. 503 will make English the official language of the United States, require the establishment of a uniform language requirement for naturalization, and set the framework for uniform testing of English language ability for candidates for naturalization.  Read the story at YahooNews
