There was one word in Gov. Joe Lombardo’s January State of the State address that specifically caught the attention of Gaming Control Board Chairman Kirk Hendrick.
During the speech, Lombardo took the unusual step of calling out the board’s testing lab, saying that “concerns have surfaced” over the approval process. The governor said new gaming products were being introduced “with more speed outside of Nevada,” which gives other casino states a competitive advantage in the opinion of casino operators.
“We need to work with the control board to ensure the logjam is cleared,” Lombardo said.
