Some regulations don't include technology and innovations developed

Nevada governor calls for an update of gaming regulations

(US).- Gov. Brian Sandoval is calling for a modernization of regulations over the casino industry. He said that Nevada must remain the “undisputed leader in the gaming economy.” Some regulations have been on the books since the 1970s and don't include technology and innovations developed since then, he argued.

ark Lipparelli, chairman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board, said the state must “streamline” the process to deal with technology that has evolved. For instance, he said some existing regulations make it impossible to test the software, technology and new machines that become available. As technology has advanced, he said the regulations failed to keep pace.

“Twenty-first century demands mandate that we provide a flexible environment for the technological resources that are the underpinning of modern gaming devices,” the governor said in his speech.

This is in line with his previous directive to state agencies to look at regulations to see if they are outdated and whether there hundreds of state boards and commissions could be eliminated.
