LAS VEGAS (AP) - A proposal to name a southern Nevada peak after former President Ronald Reagan has been derailed.

U.S. Rep. Dina Titus has introduced a bill seeking to instead name the peak of Frenchman Mountain after Maude Frazier, a fellow Democrat and the first female lieutenant governor of Nevada.

While the state board of geographic names signed off on the Reagan Peak proposal in September, any action by the national board is on hold pending the outcome of the Nevada congresswoman's bill.

Conservative activist Chuck Muth of Las Vegas, who proposed the Reagan Peak name, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that Titus' action is a "cheap, petty, partisan political stunt."

But Titus spokesman Caitlin Teare says there's no personal or political motive behind the bill. He says it's "simply an effort to name a Nevada landmark after a notable Nevadan."
