A bill requiring Missourians to take driver's exams only in English has been given preliminary approval by the House.
Wrap: The House heard both personal testimony and heated debate from Representatives in relation to a bill requiring English only driver's examinations.
Missouri currently provides the tests in 12 languages.
Democratic Representative Sylvester Taylor from St. Louis County voiced his disappointment with the Department of Revenue.
|Description: "Why don't we let them do what they're supposed to do? We let teachers teach, they should be in charge of administering the test."|
The House gave the bill preliminary approval with a vote of 91 to 59. It will still need to be third read and passed before moving to the Senate.
