Subject: English as official US language, Senate proposal

I would greatly appreciate any information concerning a proposal
before the US Senate that English be instituted as the official language
of the US (and so used on all official documents etc.).
I am particularly interested in the implications for bilingual
education, minority ethnic groups, and any further social implications.
I would like to know the name of the bill and the name of the
Senator who has proposed it. I would be very interested to see any
quotation from it, along with your assessment of the specific implication.
I would further appreciate direction to Internet addresses where I might
obtain relevant current material.

Thanks very much

Michael Guest
