CARSON CITY, NV (AP) -

Nevada's chief gambling regulator says she's been encouraged by the input she's received from casino executives and workers as the state's Gaming Control Board considers rules addressing sexual harassment.

Board Chairwoman Becky Harris told The Associated Press Wednesday she's reviewing a revised draft of the proposed regulations and expects to circulate them for public comment "soon."

The drafting of regulations was spurred by the sexual misconduct scandal surrounding former casino owner Steve Wynn. He has denied the allegations against him.

Members of the union representing thousands of casino workers told the board earlier the final regulations should address sexual harassment by guests and high rollers as well as employees.

Harris wouldn't provide details but said the revised draft provides "an improved method" for reporting harassment claims.
