Bill on ASL

Virginia's governor gets to decided whether high school students can count ASL as a foreign language, after the Virginia Senate and House passed a bill that would make it law. Republican Dickie Bell introduced the bill and it easily passed the House by a vote of 95-3 and the Senate with a vote of 34-6. The measure also encourages Virginia universities to recognize ASL as a foreign language.
