Virginia Senate subcommittee approves bill on East Sea name Updated: 2014-01-14 22:01:20 KST

Moving now to another textbook debate, this one in the United States over what to call the body of water between Korea and Japan.
Some school books in the U.S. may soon identify the sea by two names instead of one.
On Monday, an Education and Health Subcommittee of the Virginia State Senate unanimously passed one of three pending bills to designate the sea as both the East Sea and the current Sea of Japan in public school textbooks.
The other two pending bills contain similar stipulations and are also likely to be approved with strong bipartisan support.
If passed by the full Senate, the bill will take effect on July first.
