    “I hope to sketch a new road map for the journey ahead.” That is what Brian Sandoval, Governor of Nevada said as he announced that he will be reviving the Gaming Policy Committee at the State Bar of Nevada’s Gaming Law Conference.

    The committee is made up of 11 members and their discussions could eventually lead to the making of policy, decisions, regulations and legislation of the gaming industry in Nevada.

    Sandoval added that, “We will preserve our position as the gold standard in gaming regulation and in the provision of gaming entertainment. We will be second to none on the globe.”

    The Gaming Policy Committee was created in 1961 by then Governor Grant Sawyer, Sandoval actual served as the Chairman of the commission from 1999 to 2001. Though a subcommittee met in 2007, the full group has not met since the 80’s.

    Sandoval also announces he has asked Mark Lipparelli, Chairman for the Nevada Gaming Control Board, and Peter Bernhard, Chairman for the Nevada Gaming Commission to join the Gaming Policy Committee and added;

    Nevada’s success in capitalising on the emergence of Internet poker will depend on the strength of its leadership as a sophisticated regulator of gaming.

    We can only imagine what technology will bring in another ten years and there are policy implications for us in that world of rapid change.

    We will examine issues ranging from specific technological devices to the world of the Internet to the impact we may someday see on our tax policy from an infrastructure in a changed cybereconomy in which gamers will not necessarily need to be on the casino floor.
