WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Tuesday, the D.C. Council is expected to enter the debate about the Redskins name.

The Council plans to pass a resolution which says changing the Redskins name is the right and prudent thing to do given its racist and derogatory definition.

Even if the bill passes, the council has no authority to force a name change.
