What Happened Iowa?
Laws in Iowa are now creating havoc with the population. This is because Iowa has a law stating that all official state and political documents have to be written in English and no other language. This law is called the Iowa English Language Reaffirmation Act, and it was created in 2002 by Tom Vilsack to assimilate people into the Iowa culture (Arena, 2021). When this law was created, it also stated that English was Iowa’s official language (IDCA, 2020). However, before the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, Iowa was occupied by the Sauk, Fox, and Winnebago tribes and then later discovered by two French men, falling under the ownership of France (World Travel Guide, 2019). This means that English wasn’t always the language spoken in the state, nor was it the first language of the area.
