CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — The chairwoman and executive director of the Nevada Gaming Control Board is resigning.

Sandra Douglass Morgan will be leaving her position as of November 6th, Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak announced Thursday.

Sisolak said in a statement that Morgan was resigning to “pursue an exciting professional opportunity,” which turns out to be with Fidelity National Finacial.

Sisolak said he’ll name Morgan’s replacement in the near future. 

Morgan said that in the last two years, “the board has ensured that gaming licensees adopted and implemented policies for all types of discrimination and harassment, modernized its regulations to allow cashless wagering at machines and table games, investigated the merger creating the world’s largest casino company, and adopted COVID-19 mitigation measures.”
