English As Official Language Bills

Faught was quick to spark controversy, when in January 2007 he filed a bill to make English the official language of Oklahoma. Democrat legislators and Native American tribes, such as the Cherokee and Creek, came out strongly against this legislation.

In the 2008 session Faught, along with Rep. Randy Terrill (R, Moore) again filed legislation to make English the Official Language of Oklahoma. This time, the bill passed through the House, but was not brought up in the Senate. [http://www.usenglish.org/view/456]
