Sponsor: Rep. Cynthia M. Lummis [R-WY]

Status: Reported by Committee - Ordered to be Reported (Amended) by the Yeas and Nays: 23 - 15.

Summary: Yellowstone and Grand Teton Paddling Act Directs the Department of the Interior to promulgate regulations to allow the use of hand-propelled vessels on certain rivers and streams within: (1) the Yellowstone National Park in Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming; and (2) the Grand Teton National Park and the John D.

States that the regulations issued under this Act shall not consider any expansion of commercial use of hand-propelled vessels in the Parks. Preempts existing regulations governing vessels in Yellowstone National Park and in Grand Teton National Park. Authorizes Interior to recover all costs associated with monitoring the use of hand-propelled vessels, including the cost of inspecting and decontaminating vessels to prevent the introduction or spread of invasive or injurious species in such National Parks and the Memorial Parkway.
