BROOKLYN - Two City Council members are proposing a bill that would require store names and addresses to be in English throughout the borough.

Councilmen Dan Halloran and Peter Koo say the move would help first responders in emergency situations who may otherwise have trouble finding their location.

The bill would ask that 60 percent of every store sign be in English. A state law already requires the stipulation, but the councilmen say police fail to enforce it.

If passed, the proposal would give business owners up to four years to change existing signs and shop awnings.
