HR 1192 renames Mammoth Peak in Yosemite National Park in honor of Jesse Benton Freemont. It comes to us from the National Parks Promotion Council with the support of the El Dorado County Historical Society and other local historians from throughout the region, to recognize this pioneer who played a significant role in the establishment of Yosemite National Park. The National Parks Promotion Council exists to promote the national parks as a premier tourist destination.
The testimony in support of HR 1192 makes the strong historical case for the bill, which I will not repeat. I do want to address the administration's opposition to the bill.
