Date: Fri, 10 May 1996 14:44:39 -0400 From: Jeutonne Brewer Subject: Re: English Only Amendment North Carolina passed an English Only law in July, 1987. Shortly after that the legislature passed a resolution that said in effect that the legislature did not intend that the law would deny rights to anyone. If you are making a distinction between English Only and English as an Official Language, the NC law is of the official language variety. Since that time I think there has been mostly silence on the subject. Most North Carolinians don't seem to know that the state has such a law. That was certainly the case in my undergraduate class this semester when we talked about English Only laws. I have a copy of the NC law and the resolution. If you need or want a copy, I will be glad to mail them to you. ************************************************** * jpbrewer[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] * * Jeutonne_Brewer[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] * * Jeutonne P.
