MR SPEAKER: WE DESERVE TO KNOW ALL THE FACTS ABOUT 38 STUDIOS

Cranston, RI -  After four years of investigation by the State Police and the R.I.
Attorney General into 38 Studios, no criminal charges will be filed and none of 
the information collected from this investigation will be released to the public.
In response, Steven Frias, Republican candidate for Rep. District 15, commented:
 "Since becoming Speaker in 2014, Nicholas Mattiello has pointed to the investigation
by law enforcement as a reason why the House of Representatives did not need to 
conduct a full investigation into 38 Studios.  However, this investigation has been
concluded and the people of Rhode Island still have unanswered questions.  According
to a WJAR 10 news report dated June 12, 2015, Mattiello indicated that he 'would
 like information gathered by law enforcement to be available'.  Speaker Mattiello
should now call upon the State Police and the Attorney General to release the
information
they have collected through their investigation, in particular as it relates to 
involvement of current or prior elected officials in 38 Studios."
Frias added: "If the State Police or the Attorney General will not disclose this
 information, the Speaker should ask the House Oversight Committee to begin a full
investigation into 38 Studios and use its subpoena powers to obtain documentation
collected by State Police and the R.I. Attorney General related to 38 Studios.  
When it comes to 38 Studios, there will be no closure for Rhode Islanders until 
they know all the facts and learn exactly what role their elected officials played
in this debacle."
