Nevada Gaming Commission to Modify or Eliminate 24 Regulations
Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that the Nevada Gaming Commission unanimously designated two lists of gaming regulations subject to modification or elimination in the forthcoming period. Tuesday’s session of the Commission also marked the final meeting attendance of Steven Cohen as a commissioner after the four-year service.
Withdrawal and Appointments:
Appointed to the Commission in 2019 by former Gov. Steve Sisolak, Cohen reportedly announced withdrawal from the position after his mandate expires at the of this month. Steve Cohen, a founding partner of the law firm Cohen Johnson Parker Edwards, reportedly declined the possibility to serve another four-year term and told the Board that someone new should step in his place.
The new member of the Nevada Gaming Control Board will be appointed by Gov. Joe Lombardo, who already made the first appointment in January when the governor’s decision brought former State Treasurer and Lt. Gov. Brian Krolicki to the five-person board. However, Cohen’s withdrawal now requests another inclusion in the Board entitled to final decision-making actions as far as licensing recommendations are concerned.
