Abstract: This work presents an analysis of language legislation in the 50 states of the U.S. and Washington D.C. through the study of their constitutions and statutes, with special attention to the laws affecting Spanish language. Thus, the study “Language Legislation in the U.S.,” in which the 19 states with the highest percentage of Hispanic residents were considered, is now completed with the remaining 31 states, showing a complete picture that enriches the analysis and the conclusions presented at that time.
