Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval has reappointed A.G. Burnett as chairman of regulatory body the Nevada Gaming Control Board.
Burnettâ€™s four-year term was due to expire this month but he will now serve a second four-year stint of heading up the organisation.
Having previously served as deputy chief of the Gaming Control Boardâ€™s corporate securities division and as a senior deputy attorney general in the gaming division, Burnett took up the role of chairman in 2011.
He said: â€śI am proud to continue serving as chairman of the Gaming Control Board.
â€śI look forward to continuing the boardâ€™s work as we regulate Nevadaâ€™s most important industry.â€ť
In addition, Shawn Reid has been reappointed as a board member, a company spokeswoman confirmed.
Reid, whose term was also due to expire this month, had previously served as chief of the Control Boardâ€™s investigation division before being promoted to the panel, which is made up of three members.
The members are all full-time state employees and make recommendations to the Nevada Gaming Commission.
