Public Policy

Inland_Empire_largeThere are two counties and more than 50 cities in the Inland Empire, but the region is considered one metropolitan area by most officials on the state and national levels. To answer the challenge that the region receives broad recognition and has its needs met, the IEEP continually steps up its efforts to be one of the area’s strongest central voices. Lawmakers outside the Inland area usually look at the region as a whole and not on a city-by-city basis. It can be a tremendous advantage to the area to present a unified front to the political powers and get them to listen to us, and that is something we continue to try to do.
