What is House Bill H.R. 1192?
This bill would re-designate Mammoth Peak in Yosemite National Park as "Mount Jessie Benton Fremont" and state that the peak should be informally known as "Mt. Jessie." This renaming would be in honor of Jessie Benton Fremont's contributions toward the approval of the Yosemite Grant--the land grant under which both Yosemite Valley and the Mariposa Big Tree Grove in California were granted to the state of California by the federal government.
