We have great news to report, official English legislation is gaining momentum in the U.S. Senate.
As you know, Senator Inhofe recently introduced S.678, the English Language Unity Act of 2017 which would make English the official language of the federal government. S.678 was quick to gain Senators Boozman, Cotton, and Isakson as cosponsors.
We’re pleased to announce Senator Mike Rounds of South Dakota has also signed on as a cosponsor to The English Language Unity Act of 2017!
ProEnglish has been tirelessly lobbying to encourage more U.S. Senators to cosponsor this important bill and make English our official language.
Passage of this bill is important for all Americans, as untold millions will be saved in translation costs, safety issues will be promoted, and it will also encourage recent arrivals to assimilate into American culture in the spirit of E Pluribus Unum (from many, one).
Senator Inhofe hit the nail on the head in 2009, when he said: “This diversity is part of what makes our nation great. However we must be able to communicate with one another so that we can appreciate our differences.”
With so much division in Washington, this commonsense measure with broad public support, is the perfect bill for Congress to put on President Trump’s desk to sign. Now is our moment, but we need your help.
