Nevada Sen. Becky Harris to head Gaming Control Board

The Nevada Gaming Control Board will soon have its first woman chair as Gov. Brian Sandoval has chosen state Sen. Becky Harris (pictured) R-Las Vegas to replace former Chairman A.G. Burnett, who on Dec. 22 stepped down to work for a Reno law firm.

According to a news release from the governor’s office, the 49-year-old Harris, who represents State Senate District 9 in Clark County, will reportedly resign her seat to serve as the first woman to head the Gaming Control Board, as reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

“To be appointed to the finest regulatory system in the world is a tremendous responsibility,” Harris said in the news release. “I am grateful for the trust and confidence Governor Sandoval has placed in me. I am committed to serving with determination and honor.”

Harris, who is reportedly licensed to practice law in Virginia and Nevada, said that while she would miss serving in the state Senate, “but my public service to the citizens of Nevada will certainly go on in this new full-time role.”

The Nevada Gaming Control Board’s six divisions have 404 employees who oversee 2,921 licensees. The Board’s full-time chairman is reportedly paid an annual salary of $158,879.
