The nations most populous state is asking its 38 million residents to stop cussing beginning next Monday.

The state Assembly passed a resolution Thursday that would establish the first week of March as a Cuss Free Week. If approved, the measure would take effect immediately.

There are no enforcement rules however.

The move was inspired by McKay Hatch who started a no-cussing club at his junior high-school in 2007.

The 16-year-old Hatch, who has seen no-cussing clubs expand to more than 100 schools and 35,000 online members, attended Thursday's Assembly vote.

Hatch doesn't really expect the entire state to honor the resolution, but he hopes it will attract attention to civil discourse.

I just want to get back to the basics, he said. People use cussing so frequently that they don't even know it, but it really offends a lot of people.
