Alexander Honored with an “A in English” Award
Recognized for support of official English legislation
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Rodney Alexander, R-Quitman, was recognized by U.S. English, Inc. for his dedication to preserving the unifying role of the English language in the United States. Alexander was one of a select number of House members honored with an “A in English” award based on his votes and co-sponsorships of official English legislation in the 111th Congress.
“I am pleased to present this award to Rep. Alexander for his efforts to unite our diverse nation under the common language of English,” said Mauro E. Mujica, Chairman of the Board of U.S. English, Inc. “At a time when there is renewed interest toward preserving what unites us as a nation, we are grateful to Rep. Alexander for his dedicated and enthusiastic support of this issue.”
Alexander said he appreciates this important recognition:
“I am proud to receive the ‘A in English’ award. As a member of the Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus, I resolutely support designating English as the official language of our nation. In fact, I am a cosponsor of H.R. 997, the English Language Unity Act, which seeks to accomplish this.”
