New Hampshire's gaming study commission is finishing its interim report for Gov. John Lynch on the pros and cons of expanding gambling.

The commission meets Tuesday at the New Hampshire Higher Education Assistance Foundation in Concord to discuss the report to be delivered to Lynch later this month.

Lynch formed the commission to study various models of gaming and the potential gaming has to produce more state revenues as well as its impact on the state's quality of life.

The draft report under discussion concludes the commission needs more analysis and hard data before it can reach firm findings. The report says that will be the commission's mission between now and June when its final report is due.
