Initiative A requires the adoption of rules for the public and higher education systems to assist non-English speaking persons to learn English and to encourage foreign language instruction. Initiative A requires any state funds affected by its implementation to remain in the state's General Fund, requires an accounting of those funds, and authorizes the Legislature to appropriate those funds for programs for English as a second language.||”|
