A.G. Burnett, the chairman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board since November 2012, stepped down last month to take a position in the private sector. Burnett blazed many trails during his term as chairman, including iGaming, nightclub regulations, daily fantasy sports, skill-based gaming, eSports gaming, marijuana use and more.
Burnett is taking a position with the Reno, Nevada law firm of McDonald Carano, and will handle administrative and gaming law. First, however, he’ll sit out a one-year “cooling off” period before he represents any clients before the gaming board.
Governor Brian Sandoval, also a former gaming regulator, said he will appoint a successor to Burnett at a later date.
