1/1/2019 Representative Elect Lyle recommends an independent commission on 38 Studios
Representative Elect Lyle has sent a formal letter to Attorney General Elect Neronha asking him that one of his first duties as Rhode Island’s Attorney General to be opening a commission to investigate the who, what, where, when, and how’s of the infamous 38 Studios blunder.

Lyle stated “It is readily apparent that the current Attorney General avoided addressing this pressing matter as a result of his former position as a member of the leadership team of a previous Speaker of the House.  As I walked throughout my District, I repeatedly heard voters ask, “when are we going to get to the bottom of the 38 Studios deal?”  The citizens of our state are demanding answers and I am confident that under your leadership they will get them.”
Lyle continued “The stench of 38 Studios hovers over our state and will continue to hamper economic growth and development until the riddle is solved as to why taxpayers were left holding the bag to pay for this boondoggle.  The bitter taste that this corrupt bargain left in the mouths of many Rhode Islanders resulted directly in the imminent departure of the PawSox. The time has come to make those who were responsible for this unfortunate situation culpable, so this won’t happen again.”
