This amendment would put into explicit law what is already the case in Missouri that government meetings be conducted in English. Supporters say the measure ensures that government is open and easily understood by the population. Opponents, however, say it's a camouflaged attempt to cash in on anti-immigrant sentiment for politics' sake. In Oregon, a measure is on the ballot to limit non-English speakers to two years of biligual education in the public schools. After two years, the students would have to move to mainstream classes conducted only in English.
