Gaming Policy Committee: modernize with Internet poker

Governor Sandoval will convene the Gaming Policy Committee to discuss issues related to technology and the modernization of the gaming industry.

We must preserve Nevada's leadership role in gaming--even in this brave new digital world, if we are entering a new era in gaming history.

Internet poker may be one of a series of modernizing events that may change the direction of gaming, with statewide implications for tax policy, workforce development, and infrastructure on the Las Vegas Strip.

Online poker companies still viable, must keep close watch

Nevada is the regulatory standard-bearer and we must continue to guard against any semblance of wrong-doing in our most important industry. While the allegations made against three companies are of grave concern, I remain committed to the prospect of federal legislation that will provide for Internet gaming in a way that applies the same rigorous standards to online companies that we apply to traditional gaming institutions. I have asked Nevada's gaming regulators to closely monitor the federal case.

Make Nevada "the" place for gaming innovation

Since I completed my term as chairman of the Nevada Gaming Commission, the gaming entertainment industry has expanded to new states and many new corners of the world. Competitive forces demand a new approach from our regulatory infrastructure. In an increasingly competitive and global economy, Nevada will be "the" place for gaming innovation. Nevada started this industry. We shaped its development, and we must remain the undisputed leader in the gaming economy. Twenty-first century demands mandate that we provide a flexible environment for the technological resources that are the underpinning of modern gaming devices. I have asked the leadership of our regulatory bodies to begin immediately to process statutory and regulatory changes that sensibly reflect the modernization of the industry.
