On December 19th, ProEnglish Executive Director Robert Vandervoort was a guest on the The Dave Merlino Show on 640 WGST in Atlanta, GA. They spoke at length about how our common language of English is under attack in this country.
Dave discussed ProEnglish's Official English Map which shows the states that have official English laws and those that do not.
Robert mentioned a few of the federal bills in Congress that would make English our official language. For example, Representative Peter King's H.R. 1164, the National Language Act, on which ProEnglish is helping to accumulate co-sponsors.
They also talked about the very volatile Puerto Rican statehood issue which has may have serious consequences for official English in the U.S.
Lastly, Dave and Robert talked about the 2012 Presidential race. ProEnglish recently finished grading the candidates on their record of public support for official English and related issues, like bilingual ballots and English-on-the-job. The rankings might surprise many voters!
