Nashville Nixes English-only Law

Nashville Mayor Bill Purcell vetoed and English-only measure on Monday, February 12, saying it was "unconstitutional, unnecessary and mean-spirited."

At best, the measure was seen as symbolic and a slap in the face to the Nashville area's substantial Latino population.

Bravo, Mr. Purcell. Let's hope that other politicians will follow your lead and dispense with similar nonsense legislative initiatives..
