The board of the Rhode Island Economic Development Corporation has set an emergency meeting Wednesday morning, after Curt Schilling's video game making company defaults on a $1.125 million loan guaranatee payment.
Rhode Island House Speaker Gordon Fox revealed the default by 38 Studios on a payment stemming from its $75 million, state-backed loan guarantee, saying he learned of the video game making company's financial situation in a briefing Tuesday from EDC Executive Director Keith Stokes.
The emergency meeting includes a posting for a closed-door, "executive session". It is not clear whether Schilling, the company's founder, former Red Sox pitcher and current ESPN analyst will attend the meeting.

This is what happens when we the taxpayers give someone anything, never mind $75M and no one in the sate has enough sense to follow up and "mind the candy store". another example of total lack of leaderhsip from top to bottom, beginnig to end.
