English In the Workplace
It seems like Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen just wants to avoid the question
of the new "English in the Workplace" law:
Now I'll harbor an educated guess about why Governor Bredesen is so keen to water down the impact of this legislation-he believes in the bill and in what the authors are attempting to accomplish by introducing it, but he really doesn't want to be seen as a Democratic Governor picking a fight with Hispanic groups and other Democratic ethnic constituencies in an election year when his party's nominee to replace him is already at the back of the political pack. Bredesen doesn't want to deal with the fallout over this bill inside his own party, so he is trying to publicly dilute it's impact.
