PHOENIX – Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has appointed a federal prosecutor as the new director of the state agency that regulates Indian casinos.
Mark Brnovich is an assistant U.S. attorney whose work focused on federal offenses occurring in gambling operations in the state. He previously served as an assistant state attorney general with responsibility for representing the Department of Gaming.
Brnovich replaces Paul Bullis, an appointee of former Gov. Janet Napolitano.
Brewer thanked Bullis for his service to the state on Tuesday and his “willingness to participate in an effective transition.”
