House Speaker Cancels Convention Center Audit

House Speaker Nicholas Mattiello has withdrawn a request for an audit of the Rhode Island Convention Center. House Minority Leader Blake Filippi filed a lawsuit, accusing Mattiello of ordering the audit after a friend of the speakers was suspended from his job as the Convention Center's director of security. Filippi argued Mattiello ordered the audit when it should have been authorized by the Joint Committee on Legislative Services. Additionally, the Convention Center Authority's board voted unanimously to not comply with the audit until it was authorized by the committee.
