English Only For Missouri Driving Tests

I’m a big proponent for the citizens of the United States to speak English. For now, English is our main language. There is no problem, in my opinion, with individuals conversing with others in their native language, but they need to assimilate and speak the national language.State Rep. Cynthia Davis of Missouri, a Missouri Congresswoman, is pushing the Missouri State Highway Patrol to offer driver’s license examinations only in English. She has introduced a bill to do just this.

From The Suburban Journal:

Davis said she was surprised by the steps taken by the highway patrol to accommodate non-English speakers in a state where in 2008 voters approved a constitutional amendment making English the official language at all public meetings. In addition to testing in foreign languages, she said, those who don’t speak any of the 12 languages may hire a translator from a state-approved list and have the test read to them in their native language.

How do these people read all the street signs? Just a question.

Of course, this is just my opinion.
