Sulphur's Dennis Stine was appointed to the state Gaming Control Board by Gov. Bobby Jindal on Friday.

The Louisiana Gaming Control Board serves to regulate public policy of the state's gaming industry.

Stine, of Sulphur, serves as the CEO of Stine Lumber. He is also the vice chairman on the Christus Health Board and serves on its Finance Strategy and Investment committees. Stine will be appointed to serve as a member with expertise in finance and as a representative of the 3rd Congressional District.

The board is comprised of nine gubernatorial appointments, seven representing each congressional district, and two at-large members.

Bob Jones, of Lake Charles, resigned from the Gaming Control Board last month. The 74-year-old Jones said he made the move because a family member married someone in the gaming industry.
