ProEnglish is very excited to announce a new milestone!
There are now 60 supporters of HR 997 – The English Language Unity Act of 2017 – in the United States House of Representatives, as Rep. Dave Brat 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 59 co-sponsors since that time, for a current total of 60 House supporters.
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.
ProEnglish continues to engage House members on a daily basis on Capitol Hill as we seek to add even more co-sponsors to the English Language Unity Act.
