Police to question members on 38 Studios

Posted: Updated:
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - House Speaker Nicholas Mattiello says Rhode Island State Police want to interview all lawmakers who voted on the job-creation program under which ex-Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling's company got a $75 million state-backed loan.
Mattiello's spokesman said Wednesday the speaker told police he will assist them in contacting current and former representatives.
State police head Col. Steven O'Donnell has said previously there's an active criminal investigation into 38 Studios. Federal authorities conducted one but closed it.
The General Assembly in 2010 hurriedly approved the loan guarantee program. It wasn't disclosed at the time that 38 Studios stood to get $75 million.
The company went bankrupt. The former Economic Development Corp. is suing over its collapse, saying its board was misled.
Rhode Island owes more than $89 million.
