The National Park Service has a chance to add 793 acres to Yosemite National Park, extending its boundaries to all the land originally envisioned by conservation pioneer John Muir, who first proposed the park back in the 1880’s. But the Congressman who represents Yosemite and surrounding areas is saying, “No.” He’s Republican Tom McClintock, who’s also in a fight for re-election against another Republican, Art Moore, who came in second in the recent Top-Two primary.
