Official English As A 2022 Midterm Issue

Official English As A 2022 Midterm Issue

Official English legislation has the potential to emerge as a very important issue in the 2022 midterm elections.

ProEnglish has been in daily contact with members of Congress and with candidates for Congress in an effort to publicize, promote, and build support for passage of the English Language Unity Act in both the U.S. House (H.R.997) and the U.S. Senate (S.678). The bill designates English as the nation’s official language of governmental operations and establishes a uniform language requirement for the citizen naturalization process.

Passage of the English Language Unity Act in Congress would save Americans billions of dollars every year in current, government-mandated translation and interpretation costs, and also would encourage cultural and linguistic integration by new arrivals to our nation.

ProEnglish also is supporting official English efforts in various states across the nation as we seek to add to the list of 32 states across the USA that already have passed official English legislation.

Please be sure to ask your candidates about their level of support for the English Language Unity Act and for official English legislation at the state level, and please support ProEnglish as we strive to make official English a key issue in the November 2022 midterm elections!
