0

Republican lawmakers are hoping to make English the official language in Wisconsin.

Senators Andre Jacque, Dave Craig and Steve Nass’ have introduced a proposal that would declare English as Wisconsin’s official language and require all state and local government officials to write all their documents in English, according to the Associated Press. The senators wrote in their memo seeking co-sponsors that English proficiency is vital to American society and immigrants who understand English have a better chance of finding a job.

Jacque and Craig first introduced the bill back in 2013 when they were both in the Wisconsin state Assembly.
