Announcements:  1) The Inland Action holiday party was an enjoyable event.  Appreciation was expressed to staff, and members Peter Barmack for his band, and Mike Burrows for arranging the venue.  2) The San Manuel Band of Mission Indians held the grand opening of their new resort and casino named Yaamava.  The event was very nice and well attended. 3) Members were reminded that draft federal issue papers are due February 1st, and the selection of top priorities will be decided on February 8, 2022.  Committees are encouraged to meet on their own but will have some meeting time following the Annual meeting on January 11, 2022. 4) The Redistricting Commission has divided both the City of Redlands in half and Rancho Cucamonga in thirds. Public comment/testimony have been difficult as meetings have been running extremely long and some have been canceled.  The process has been frustrating and disappointing.

Lowell King, Chair, presiding.

Motion by D. Roberts/ Second by K. Scott/Passed: Minutes from December 7, 2021.

Committee members were sent to their respective virtual meeting rooms to discuss 2022 Federal advocacy issues.
