On November 22, 2011, then-Governor Patrick signed into law “An Act Establishing Expanded Gaming in The Commonwealth”, creating a five-member Gaming Commission to implement the new law. The Governor, Attorney General, and Treasurer are each designated one appointment to this Commission.  The remaining two members are chosen by two of the three appointing authorities, i.e. the Governor, Attorney General and Treasurer.

On July 27, 2015, the Attorney General's appointee, Judge James McHugh, announced his resignation to the Gaming Commission effective September 30, 2015. 

To ensure continued representation, the Attorney General has opened the application period for her appointment to the Gaming Commission.
