When Bill Sali ran for Congress in 2006, he promised his Idaho constituents that he would fight to make English the official language. After he was elected, Rep. Sali followed through on that promise, backing efforts to make English the official language, reduce government multilingualism, and protect employers who establish English-in-the-Workplace policies.

Earlier this autumn, Rep. Sali sat down with U.S. English to discuss the value of English in the Workplace Policies for the productivity of American businesses.
