English-only drivers test debatedby Cathy Wurzer, Minnesota Public Radio
In the Minnesota House, lawmakers are expected to debate an amendment that would require drivers license tests be given only in English. The amendment was proposed earlier this week as an addition to a larger transportation bill. The written portion of the Minnesota drivers license exam is currently given in several languages, including Hmong, Somali, and Spanish. Morning Edition host Cathy Wurzer spoke with Republican Representative Marty Siefert, sponsor of the amendment.
