A BILL

To designate a mountain in the State of Utah as “Miracle Mountain”.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. Short title.

This Act may be cited as the “Miracle Mountain Designation Act”.

SEC. 2. Findings.

Congress finds as follows:

(1) On September 13, 2018, the Bald Mountain Fire burned nearly 20,000 acres of land in Utah.

(2) Elk Ridge City, located in Utah County, was nearly the victim of this fire.

(3) Suddenly, the fire halted its progression and, instead of burning into Elk Ridge City, stayed behind the mountain and spared the city.

(4) Congress, in acknowledgment of this event, believes this mountain holds special significance to the residents of Elk Ridge City and surrounding communities.

(5) The presently unnamed peak has been referred to as “Miracle Mountain” by many residents since the fire that nearly went into Elk Ridge City.

SEC. 3. Miracle Mountain.

(a) Designation.—The mountain in the State of Utah, located at 39° 59′ 02N, 111° 40′ 12W, shall be known and designated as “Miracle Mountain”.

(b) References.—Any reference in a law, map, regulation, document, record, or other paper of the United States to the mountain described in subsection (a) shall be considered to be a reference to “Miracle Mountain”.
