State Sens. George Maziarz (R) and Joe Griffo (R) and Assemblymen Karim Camara (D) and Keith Wright (D) will introduce the resolution alongside Ray Halbritter, a representative of the Oneida Indian Nation of New York who has spearheaded the Change The Mascot campaign against the name of Washington’s professional football franchise since last year.
