In the month of June, the Nevada Gaming Commission is receiving complaints about gaming facilities in the State of Nevada.
In a nutshell, gaming commissions in Nevada have been receiving complaints about gaming facilities since 2008, so the commission has been doing a few things to try and improve the situation. One of the things the commission is doing is to hold gaming facilities accountable for their compliance with state law.
Most of the complaints this commission receives are from the gaming facilities themselves. The complaints are usually about the number of hours of gaming facilities are open, hours of gaming, and the noise levels. It’s a little like a traffic light system that tells you when you’re speeding over the speed limit or driving on the wrong side of the road. There is also a bit of a disconnect between the public and the gaming commission.
This is because the gaming commission, unlike the public, is only trying to get the facilities’ compliance with state law and the laws of other states. All of the complaints are about the hours that gaming facilities are open, the hours of gaming, and the noise levels.
The gaming commission has a different complaint. They are concerned about the excessive noise levels of gaming facilities that have been approved by the commission. Specifically, the complaint is made about the use of sound-deadening headphones and earbuds. This is something that the gaming commission has been doing for years and years. We know how it goes: the commission gives the go-ahead to a facility (usually a casino) and then the facility has to do some of the work.
The gaming commission has a number of complaints about noise control systems. They know the noise levels are too high for gaming facilities, so we want to make sure we’re not violating the commission’s standards. We have a few pieces of evidence here that show the noise level is bad enough that we don’t have to look at it.
We feel the same way about the noise level at our own casinos, so we want to make sure were not violating the commissions standards.
The problem is the commission doesn’t have a standard for noise levels. For them to make any sense at all, they would have to define which noise levels are acceptable or not. This is an incredibly difficult task to solve as noise, while subjective, is not as easy to measure as other elements of noise. Because of these issues, the gaming commission has to make a lot of decisions in order to keep their standards.
One of these decisions is whether casinos should have soundproof rooms. If casinos don’t have soundproof rooms, then the commissions standards could have the casinos install a small box that would be plugged into the building’s electrical wiring. This would be a lot like how the movie theaters we use have the soundproofing system installed. Soundproofing rooms is a no-brainer.
The gaming commission is making a very small but very important decision by mandating that casinos install soundproof rooms. If the commission really wants to make sure casinos have soundproof rooms, then they need to require them to have the small box as well.
