(Victor Valley)– The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors and Riverside County Board of Supervisors will conduct a rare joint meeting on Tuesday, September 16, in Riverside to discuss issues of regional importance, including the local impacts of the Affordable Care Act, the release of state prison inmates to local communities for supervision, and the future of Ontario International Airport.

“We have a lot in common with our neighbors in Riverside County, so it’s important for us to come together from time to time to discuss issues that affect our residents and business communities,” said San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors Chair Janice Rutherford. “When we work together, we have a much stronger voice at the state and national levels.”

In addition to healthcare, state prison realignment, and Ontario International Airport, the boards are scheduled to discuss forming a subcommittee on inter-county cooperation to ensure regional issues are addressed in a timely manner.

The two boards conducted a formal joint meeting most recently in February 2008 in Sacramento. The boards also met together in January 2000 in Riverside and in March 1999 in San Bernardino.

Next week’s joint meeting will take place at 10 a.m. on the first floor of the Riverside County Administrative Center, 4080 Lemon St., in Riverside. Those who cannot attend the meeting can view it live or recorded at http://www.sbcounty.gov/main/countydirect.asp.
