pawlenty at podium1 Pawlenty On "English Only"Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty is weighing in on whether or not the state should make English its “official” language.

Pawlenty was asked at a news conference about his support for so-called English-only measures, similar to the one recently approved by the Lino Lakes city council.  He said it may be helpful to make English the official language of business and government documents as the diversity of languages increases across the country.

Pawlenty is considering a possible run for president. About half of all states have designated English as their officials language, primarily to cut down on translation costs.
