State legislators in Indiana and Minnesota are pushing laws requiring public documents and other government business in those states to be done only in English

Official English advocates say they feel the momentum is on their side this year, with many Republicans who support the measure having won in the November elections and in a position to move the issue forward.
“No doubt about it,” said Tim Schultz, director of government relations for U.S. English, the Washington D. C. group that leads national lobbying efforts for Official English laws.

I don't understand why if anyone would be against English as an official language. The majority of the country speaks its.
Its American culture.

I hope this passes

I think it would be in the favour of most to have real English return to America.

I hope it fails. Most people in America can't even speak correct English.

The official language should be Textlish. The English language as we know it is becoming archaic.

Who cares, they have always conducted in English so why is it an issue now?

Why am I not surprised that Republicans are again wasting taxpayer's time and money on these "cultural" bills instead of trying to focus on jobs. I don't know why the American public is so gullible and always manage to re-elect these idiots.

It's only being considered for official documents. I imagine private industry can be as multilingual as they want.
