We have great news to report, official English legislation has gained more support in the U.S. Senate.
In March, Senator Inhofe 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, Rounds, and Isakson as cosponsors.
Today, we’re pleased to announce Senator David Perdue of Georgia has also signed on as a cosponsor to The English Language Unity Act of 2017!
The House of Representatives version of the bill, H.R. 997, The English Language Unity Act of 2017 now has 43 cosponsors, with the author of the bill, Rep. Steve King, the official English bill has 44 sponsors in Congress.
ProEnglish has been tirelessly lobbying to encourage more U.S. Senators and Congressmen to cosponsor both the House and Senate versions of The English Language Unity Act of 2017.
