Several groups met Thursday to call on Gov. Gina M. Raimondo and House Speaker Nicholas A. Mattiello to investigate the 38 Studios deal. They also want greater transparency on the Pawtucket Red Sox relocation proposal.
House Speaker Nicholas A. Mattiello, D-Cranston, says a new proposal for a minor league baseball stadium in Providence could be announced as early as within the next couple of weeks with the possibility of it being taken up for consideration during a special legislative session this fall.
The Pawtucket Red Sox have sent a letter to Gov. Gina M. Raimondo, House Speaker Nicholas A. Mattiello and Senate President M. Teresa Paiva Weed in which they have backed off continuing a push to get done a deal for a new, waterfront Providence stadium by the end of the current General Assembly session.
