RI agency in flux after Schilling company falters
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- A member of Rhode Island's Economic Development Corp. board the governor said had resigned has not submitted a resignation letter.
Membership of the board remains unclear Friday following the implosion of former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling's video game company.
On Thursday, a member of Gov. Lincoln Chafee's (CHAY'-feez) administration said EDC board member Stephen Lane had resigned. Chafee's spokeswoman said Friday no resignation letter has been received.
Board Vice Chair Helena (heh-LAY'-nuh) Foulkes (fohks) announced her resignation Thursday. Chafee says two other board members whose terms have expired have asked not to be reappointed.
Schilling's 38 Studios laid off its entire staff Thursday. The company moved to Rhode Island in 2010 after the state offered a $75 million loan guarantee.
An EDC spokeswoman had no comment.
