Nevada Gaming Control Board Chairman A.G. Burnett is resigning, effective Dec. 22, 2017.
Burnett has announced plans to join law firm McDonald Carano. A replacement for Chairman Burnett will be named at a later date.
“It has been an honor to serve as the Gaming Control Board chairman, and I would like to thank Governor Sandoval for his constant support and faith in my ability,” Burnett said in a statement.
“During my tenure, the Gaming Control Board has handled unprecedented regulatory challenges, effected numerous regulatory and statutory changes to accommodate shifts in technology, and addressed issues such as internet gaming, nightclub regulation and policy regarding cannabis in connection with gaming,” Burnett said.
“I am proud of the work we have done, what we have accomplished and would like to express my gratitude to the Control Board staff for their tireless work on behalf of our state.”
