Re "English-only law targeted" (Page A4, Feb. 21): Sen. Ricardo Lara wants to repeal Proposition 227. I would suggest Lara read the California Constitution, which he has sworn to uphold. Article 3, sections 6a, 6b and 6c clearly state that English is the official language of California. Section 6d says the state can be sued for not promoting English.
