Does Maryland get to change the name of a mountain that extends into Pennsylvania without the concent of Pennsylvania because the name offends some Annapolis beauracrat?

I have drove over this mt many many times on my way to the mts of wv, Often wondered how long it would take till some beauracrat steped up to justify their existance, who really cares about the name? how much will this cost the taxpayers of md? i would be willing to bet 85% of the people of md never knew this mt existed,:-)
is this a joke

You've got to be kidding! The economy is a mess and some state senator is worried about the name of a mountain. Political correctness is becoming more and more outrageous. Have these politicians nothing better to do?
