No jet boats on the Snake River
In 2014, Paul worked with other elected officials and advocacy groups to restrict motorized watercraft on the Snake River below Grand Teton National Park and before the forest section of the river in the Snake River Canyon. The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission had previously considered allowing motorized watercraft with no horsepower limit during the summer season. Through collaboration and advocacy, the Commission agreed with local elected leaders to restrict motorized watercraft from April 1 through Labor Day weekend. The commission further agreed to a 115-horsepower cap for any motorized watercraft after Labor Day.
Kept Forest Service Office in Jackson
During his time as a Teton County Commissioner, Paul worked with other local elected officials and the Forest Service to keep the offices of the Bridger Teton National Forest in Jackson. Several other communities were vying for a chance to relocate the headquarters. Through negotiations, the town and county kept both the Supervisor’s Office and the Jackson Ranger District Office and established the construction of the current facility on North Cache.
Wildlife Crossings on Highway 89 South
Balancing transportation with wildlife, Paul had an active role in negotiations with the Wyoming Department of Transportation to secure eight wildlife crossings and additional fencing on Highway 89 South.
