ProEnglish is very excited to announce that there are now 71 supporters of HR 997 – The English Language Unity Act – in the United States House of Representatives, as Rep. Diane Black of Tennessee has become the newest co-sponsor of the bill.
HR 997 was originally authored by Rep. Steve King of Iowa, who also made some very important floor remarks about the legislation, and the bill has added 70 co-sponsors since that time, for a current total of 71 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.
Please support ProEnglish today and also please urge your representative to support HR 997 – The English Language Unity Act – if he or she has not already done so!
