This mascot logo at California's Tulare Union High School could be banned by a bill being considered by the state Legislature.

Sports teams using the nickname "Redskins" are coming under increased pressure nationally to abandon the name.  As Capital Public Radio's Ben Adler reports, a bill at the California state Capitol would make California the first state to ban public schools from using "Redskins" as their nickname or mascot.
