"W.Va. Makes English Its Official Language "
By ERIK SCHELZIG, Associated Press Writer
CHARLESTON, W.Va. - Two days after the end of the legislative session, state lawmakers are discovering something few were aware of: They voted to make English the official language of West Virginia.
The language amendment was quietly inserted into a bill addressing the number of members that cities can appoint to boards of parks and recreation. Among mundane details about record-keeping, the amendment adds the provision that "English shall be the official language of the State of West Virginia."
And so Im just wondering what the hell the official language was prior to this change.
