LAS VEGAS (AP) — Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval is expected to make a major economic policy announcement at the Nevada Development Authority’s annual gathering in Las Vegas.
Sandoval has refused to provide any details on the announcement scheduled to be made during the business luncheon at the Bellagio casino Thursday.
More than 800 people are expected to attend the Nevada Development Authority event. Sandoval is also expected to herald businesses that relocated or expanded in southern Nevada last year during his speech.
Sandoval has said that economic development is his top concern.
He recently promoted Steve Hill from interim economic development director to permanent economic director.
Hill is a former vice president of CalPortland, a concrete, sand and gravel supplier in the Las Vegas area. He was also a member of Sandoval’s transition team.
