PawSox Stadium Bill Heading To Full House

The Rhode Island House version of legislation providing a pathway for a new Pawtucket Red Sox stadium is moving forward after receiving approval from the House Finance Committee on Thursday.  The full House is scheduled to vote on the bill on Friday, and then it would need approval in the Senate, which passed its own version of a stadium-financing bill earlier this year.  The new version asks for 45-million dollars to be covered by the PawSox, and another 38-million covered by tax revenue from the city and state, and most of the money would be borrowed in bonds not guaranteed by the state.
