    "Despite support from the citizens and legislature, Arizona governor Janet Napolitano yesterday vetoed legislation that would have made English the official language of the Grand Canyon State. In her veto letter, Gov. Napolitano encouraged non-English speakers to learn the common language of the United States, but questioned whether there was enough funding for English learning programs."
