SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- California lawmakers have a history of trying to keep the state's air and waters clean. Now they're tackling language.

The state Assembly is scheduled to vote on a resolution Thursday calling for a statewide "Cuss Free Week," to occur annually during the first week of March. If approved, it would go to the state Senate for a final vote on Monday.

The rest of next week will be officially swear-word free if both houses approve the resolution.

Portantino said the California Legislature -- known for imposing strict clean air and clean water laws -- is the first state legislative body in the nation to consider a statewide profanity-free week.

Portantino said his resolution is simply a guideline, a reminder to "act like you're at your grandma's house." There would be no enforcement mechanism included.
Why am I constantly astounded at the vacuous activities our elected officials engage in? In the midst of the worst economic mess the state of California has ever seen these idiots are working on a resolution to address cursing.

"We're having fun with it," the lawmaker said, adding that he expected the measure to receive bipartisan support in both houses.
Oh, well, as long as you're having fun with it - I mean, that's whats important right? :mad:
