The California Assembly approved a bill last week that would prohibit public schools from using "Redskins" as a school or team name, mascot, or nickname.

According to local media, four high schools still use the name for their mascots.

If the commission on state mandates determines the bill contains state-mandated costs, California would help reimburse schools for making the required changes. The bill now heads to the state Senate.
