Whereas most educated people deplore bureaucratic language, regardless of its source, and

Whereas needless wordy or vague language tries the patience of us all, and

Whereas overblown language often raises questions of the sincerity or intent of its maker, and

Whereas the Board of Governors of the California State Bar Association itself voted in July of this year to promote and foster the use of plain English,


Resolved that our own Executive Committee of the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges always speak plainly to its constituents, and

Resolved that the Executive Committee advise anyone acting on its behalf to speak likewise.
