ProEnglish is pleased to announce that there are now 57 supporters of HR 997 – The English Language Unity Act of 2017 – in the United States House of Representatives, as Rep. Bradley Byrne has become the newest co-sponsor of the bill.
HR 997 was originally authored by Rep. Steve King, who also made some very important floor remarks about the legislation, and the bill has added 56 co-sponsors, for a current total of 57 House supporters.
Even as the August recess comes to a close, ProEnglish is lobbying congressional staff members on Capitol Hill, in advance of our fall legislative campaign, in order to keep adding to the list of the 57 House supporters of HR 997!
HR 997 designates English as the nation’s official language of governmental operations and also establishes a uniform language requirement for the citizen naturalization process.
Please urge your congressman to support HR 997 – The English Language Unity Act of 2017 – if he or she has not already done so!
