After nearly a decade bearing the moniker “Select Committee,” on June 5, 1984, the United States Senate voted to make permanent the Committee on Indian Affairs.  Paul was the Committee’s Staff Director and Chief Counsel to Chairman Ben Nighthorse Campbell, the first American Indian to chair the Committee, from 1997 to 2005.  Paul joined his former colleagues — staff directors from 1977 to 2019 — in celebrating the bi-partisan successes of the Committee in helping to improve the conditions of tribal communities across the country.
