Gov.-elect Steve Sisolak has named two veteran state administrators to cabinet positions in charge of DMV and Department of Taxation.

Julie Butler, head of Records, communications and compliance in the Department of Public Safety, will take over the Department of Motor Vehicles from Terri Albertson.

Butler has been in state service 24 years including positions in the budget office, state purchasing, Office of Traffic Safety and Department of Corrections.
