Government was formed in this country to serve the public and part of serving the public is making sure it is capable of talking with its citizens.
HB477, if it were to be passed, would shut government off from those who may need it the most.
The Declaration of Independence states:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal"
It doesn't say anything about only those who speak English. If Government is to serve the people, it must be responsible to the people's needs, not forcing the people to be responsible to Government's needs.
I urge the members of the state legislature to reject HB477. It is designed to disenfranchise and marginalize those who would not support the current majority party, as do voter ID laws. Reject HB477 and work to make Ohio a place where we all come together, all get to work and all strive to make Ohio better for our children.
