Assemblyman Luis Alejo wants to ban the use of "Redskins" as a mascot in all California public schools.  

Calling the term derogatory, the Democrat from Watsonville introduced a bill yesterday to ban the name, which is still used by some high schools in the state.  

Calaveras, Chowchilla, Gustine and Tulare high schools still use "Redskins" as a mascot.  

In 2004, the Legislature passed a bill to ban the use of Native American nicknames at the state's public schools, but it was vetoed by former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
