The Commission retained the New Hampshire Center for Public Policy Studies to conduct technical research and analysis for its review. Our first report, A Brief Report on Gambling in New Hampshire, was published in December, 2009. In this second report, the Center documents the development of a series of inter-related models that analyze the impacts of expanded gambling in New Hampshire.
