Slovak law change could help the Carpatho-Rusyn language

The Slovak Spectator reports that an amendment to Slovakia's minority language law could increase the number of communities in the country  where the Rusyn language is officially used. 
According to the article, the current 68 Rusyn-speaking municipalities would increase to 113 under the proposed amendment. 
Slovakia's officially recognized minority languages are Hungarian, Czech, Romani, Rusyn, Ukrainian, German, Polish, Croatian, Yiddish and Bulgarian.
