Poll: 83% want English state's official tongue


A recent poll shows that 83 percent of Maryland voters favor legislation that would require most state and local government business to be conducted in English.

The poll by nonpartisan Gonzales Research & Marketing Strategies bolsters Maryland lawmakers seeking to make English the official state language.

"For a liberal state like Maryland to have those dramatic numbers makes it clear that we have to have a vote on it," said Delegate Patrick L. McDonough, Baltimore County Republican, whose bill to make English the official state language was voted down in committee this year. "The legislators should go on record in an election year."
