Nevada Congresswoman Dina Titus was elected by colleagues Thursday to co-chair the Congressional Gaming Caucus for the remainder of the current session. Titus was elected unanimously by the 30-member caucus to fill the post left open by Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., who decided not to serve as chairman again.

Nevada will have three members on the bipartisan caucus, including Titus, who represents the Las Vegas Strip, Rep. Mark Amodei, a Republican who represents Reno and northern portions of the state, and Rep. Steven Horsford, a Democrat whose district includes North Las Vegas, as well as Nye and other southern Nevada counties.

“We’ll be joining other members of Congress across the country as we demonstrate that Nevada’s gaming system has set an example for the rest of the nation to follow,” Titus said.

She said the caucus will address concerns in the industry like sports betting, internet gaming and labor protections.

Titus will chair the caucus with Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-Pa.
