Gov. Deukmejian's Cuts on Health and School Funds

August 02, 1987

Thank you, Gov. Deukmejian, for your veto of the bilingual bill. Present bilingual education in California is a $500-million failure. We want effective bilingual education for our immigrant children, not the "make jobs" program. Supporters of your veto are 110,000 members of U.S. English in California, the 5,016,556 voters who said yes to Proposition 63 (making English the official language of California), thousands of parents of our immigrant children and the majority of bilingual teachers in the system. You acted in the best interest of our immigrant children of our state and for all of us.

STANLEY DIAMOND

Chairman

U.S. English-California

San Francisco
