BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi's chief gambling regulator is leading a group that will gather data on how Internet gambling and sports betting are working other states.

Allen Godfrey, executive director of the Mississippi Gaming Commission, is chairman of the task force.

State Rep. Richard Bennett, a Long Beach Republican and chairman of the House Gaming Committee, asked Godfrey to take the job and provide an unbiased look at the pros and cons of Internet gambling and sports betting.

The group's first meeting will be in May during the Southern Gaming Summit in Biloxi.

Bennett says other states may use the information that is collected.

Godfrey tells The Sun Herald (http://bit.ly/Pr7lYo ) the group will not be making any recommendations regarding any new legislation or regulations.
