Oklahoma Senate Likely to Act on Official English This Week

April 21, 2009

The Oklahoma Senate is likely to consider official English legislation during this week, potentially moving Oklahoma closer to becoming the 31st state to make English its official language. Up for debate is H.J.R. 1042, a measure that would give Oklahoma citizens the chance to vote an official English referendum in Nov. 2010.

H.J.R. 1042 was approved by the House in March by a margin of 66-32. Earlier, this month, a Senate committee approved it by a 9-6 vote.
