West Virginia Goes Right, Does Two Right Things

West Virginia has been doing a number of incredible things in the past four months.

They are moving right, and the rest of the country should be moving with them.

They have stood up to the Big Green agenda.

Most of the industry in West Virginia is based in coal mining.

Why should they give up their livelihood, their thriving industry to appease un-elected bureaucrats who do not care about nature (or Nature's God!)?

They simply want to grow their budgeted oppression at the expense of hardworking Americans.

West Virginia, one of the bluest states in the union for decades, has become one of the reddest.

No clearer barometer indicates the dire straits of the Democratic Party.

West Virginia also became the 26th Right-to-Work state in the nation.

Unlike other legislatures, the West Virginia assembly can override a governor's veto with a simple majority.

A simple fait accompli has expanded freedom to work (and prosper) in a majority of American states.

The second major win for individual liberty centers on state and national sovereignty.

The Mountain State became the 32nd to enshrine English as the Official Language!

Over the weekend, the Governor of West Virginia signed a bill into law to make English the official language of government.  The bill passed by 95-4 in the WV House and 26-7 in the WV Senate.  Governor Tomblin signed the bill directly, rather than risk a veto-override.
ProEnglish worked continuously with Delegates Woody Ireland and John Overington, and State Senator Dave Sypolt.  Our staff spent countless hours corresponding on the phone and over email with many other members of the West Virginia legislature, educating them about the importance of official English.  

In the end, the hard work paid off.  West Virginia is now the 32nd state to adopt official English.  

Later this year, legislators in Pennsylvania and New York may vote on official English, and Georgia legislators may soon take a vote to have a referendum to strengthen the Peach State's official English law.

ProEnglish needs your help to add more states to the official English win column. 

Thank you.



Here is more information on what ProEnglish does:

ProEnglish is the nation's leading advocate of official English. We work through the courts and in the court of public opinion to defend English's historic role as America's common, unifying language, and to persuade lawmakers to adopt English as the official language at all levels of government.
  • Adopting laws or constitutional amendments declaring English the official language of the United States, and of individual states.
  • Defending the right of individual states to make English the official language of government operations.
  • Ending bilingual education, in favor of English language immersion programs in public schools.
  • Repealing federal mandates for the translation of government documents and voting ballots into languages other than English.
  • Opposing the admission of territories as states unless they have adopted English as their official language.
