Three NEW English bills introduced in Congress! Your Congressman is back in your district this week! Tell your Rep. that these English bills need his support.

Take Action!
May 18, 2011

Your calls and emails over the past two weeks have helped propel the number of cosponsors on Rep. Steve King's English Language Unity Act (H.R. 997) from 63 to 85! Supporters like you have sent close to 10,000 email messages (and that doesn't even include your phone calls) to Capitol Hill!

With your continued efforts, we will continue to increase the level of support for English legislation and send a clear message to the House Leadership that Americans want Congress to make English the official language.

This week, the House of Representatives is at home for the district work period and they need to hear from voters like you! When Members of Congress return to their home districts, you have a brief opportunity to tell them why they should support these 3 NEW English bills.


1. Representative Peter King's (R-NY) H.R. 1164, the National Language Act, makes English the official language of the United States. It differs from H.R. 997 in that it also repeals multilingual voter ballots. Foreign language voter ballots encourage voting by non-citizens - a violation of federal law.

2. Representative Peter King's (R-NY) H.R. 1307, to repeal Presidential Executive Order 13166, which forces government offices and federal contractors to provide services in multiple languages. This Executive Order can be repealed by President Obama with the stroke of his pen or Congress can pass Rep. Peter King's bill to declare it "null and void."

3. Representative Virginia Foxx's (R-NC) H.R.1715, the Multilingual Services Accounting Act, would end speculation on the cost of multilingual government services. It also requires more transparency in the Government's accounting practices and more accountability with the use of taxpayer money. Americans deserve to know how their money is being spent.

Although most government bureaucrats don't seem to grasp the importance of preserving English as our common language, these international students certainly do!


These 3 bills will greatly reduce the federal deficit and shrink Washington's bloated budget. Call, email or meet with your Congressman while he/she is in their home districts this week!

Tell your Rep. to cosponsor these three important bills!
