Rep. Tom McClintock, who chairs the House Natural Resources Subcommittee on Federal Lands, has considerable clout over the fate of the Sierra. He opened a hearing by suggesting that John Muir, founder of the Sierra Club, would not want the National Park Service to remove amenities like ice-skating rinks, swimming pools and convenience stores from the park. Muir, of course, argued differently.
