Language politics in Nashville

Thursday, January 22, 2009

Voters in Nashville, Tennessee head to the polls today to decide whether English should be the only language for all government business in town.

Reporter Blake Farmer of WPLN has been covering the “English First" movement since the legislation was first proposed more than a year ago. He joins us from Nashville.
