Councilmen Dan Halloran and Peter Koo have been drafting this in order to increase public safety and expand beyond a traditional customer base. Totally understandable, but 60% ? I agree that having English on store signs is a good thing and helpful for people who do not read/speak the native language. However, who decided and agreed on 60%? How is this going to be enforced? In the name of public safety and for the sake of attracting a larger customer base, I would like more answers.
