THE DAILY CALLER: Dem. Lawmaker Introduces $1.5 Million Bill To Translate Gov’t Site Into Spanish
A $1.5 million bill that would translate the government’s website into Spanish was shot down Tuesday, after a Republican representative pointed out the existence of Google Translate.
Democrat State Rep. Robert Martwick (of Chicago) sponsored the bill because he felt the language barrier made it difficult for certain people to fully appreciate the wealth of information available from government resources, specifically online.
The $1.5 million cost estimation comes from one of the co-sponsors of the bill, who says that software issues could arise, according to Illinois News Network.
