Iowa Voters: Congressman King Wants Ballots In English Only
Excerpted from this post at Iowa Voters
Western Iowa's Congressman Steve King has helped stall the renewal of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. King wants to remove a provision that requires ballots be prepared in other languages if more than 5% of the voters in the jurisdiction routinely speak the other language.
This probably doesn't happen in his district. He says it is an unfunded mandate and a divisive practice that runs counter to the melting pot theory of American history. Eighty Representatives joined in King's effort.
