SACRAMENTO—A Republican lawmaker in California says Democrats in the state Legislature are blocking a resolution that condemns China for the recent violence in Tibet.State Assemblyman Sam Blakeslee introduced the resolution last month. It calls on China to honor the spirit of the Olympics by promoting a peaceful society concerned with the preservation of human dignity.

He wanted the resolution passed before the Olympic torch relay came to San Francisco on Wednesday for its only stop in North America.

Blakeslee, a Republican from San Luis Obispo, says the resolution has been stuck in committee. He accuses the Democrats who control both houses of the Legislature of ignoring his plea for a floor vote before Wednesday.
