Subject: Penna to make English Official Language

Written By: LyricBoy on 09/15/11 at 6:20 pm

Looks like the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is going to join 31 other states in making English its official language.

This will prohibit the Commonwealth from publishing multilingual documents (other than ballots which the Federal government mandates are published in a discriminatory manner), and will require applicants for a commercial driver's license to actually be able to read and speak English.
