California lawmakers say, "Let's clean up the language!"

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - California lawmakers are trying to make the Golden State a little cleaner - at least when it comes to foul language.

On Thursday, the state Assembly is scheduled to vote on a resolution calling for a statewide "Cuss Free Week," to occur annually during the first week of March. If approved by both houses of the Legislature, the resolution would take effect next week.

It was inspired by a South Pasadena teenager who founded a No Cussing Club at his junior high school in 2007. The movement has earned international attention.

Portantino said his resolution is simply a guideline, a reminder to "act like you're at your grandma's house."
