Are you sure that Texas wanted to know if you could speak English, or was it
maybe just to know if you could speak Texan?

What a problem, most of the people in Texas are not "proficient in english
language!!!"

The work we have performed for large clients has indicated that a great
portion of Texas does not use building codes.

By and large, you are correct.  There are exceptions to this general rule, 
though.  For example, Texas does not care for NCEES record.  At least, that

is what the Board's Chief (Whatever his designation) told me over the phone
a 
year or two back.  Nor does the Texas Board trust record available in any 
other state of registration.  I am registered in Oklahoma - registered 
through the PE and FE examinations.  I came from India and considering the 
difficulties and time delays involved in obtaining transcripts from the 
colleges I was at, 25 to 30 years ago, I suggested to Texas Board to get 
those documents from Oklahoma Board.  Texas Board refused.  Here is the
best 
part.  I took master's degree from University of Oklahoma on the basis of
GRE 
and TOEFL examination and, I have been practicing as a registered P.E.
since 
1990.  However, Texas Board requires that either I take TOEFL examination 
again or produce written documents to prove that I am proficient in english

language!!!

All that to say that while NCEES record is accepted by several states there

are still some states that considers themslves to be above the rest.
