Richard Kalm, whose appointment as Executive Director of the Michigan Gaming Control Board (“MGCB”) was set to expire this year, has been appointed by Governor Snyder to serve an additional six-year term as Executive Director of the MGCB. The appointment has received the requisite approval of the Michigan Senate. At the June 11th Michigan Gaming Control Board meeting, MGCB Chairman Robert Anthony congratulated Mr. Kalm on his reappointment. Kalm has successfully overseen the implementation of a significant expansion of the duties of the Michigan Gaming Control Board via Executive Order in the oversight of Michigan’s horse racing and charitable gaming industries, while continuing to regulate Detroit’s three commercial casinos and their supplier network as well as overseeing compliance of Michigan’s tribal casinos with their tribal/state gaming compacts.
