PHILADELPHIA — Pennsylvania lawmakers might want to see how New Jersey and Delaware fare with their new Internet gambling operations before they seriously consider legalizing it here, Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board Chairman Bill Ryan said on Tuesday.

Delaware is expected to go live next week, and New Jersey is targeting the end of November.
