PROVIDENCE, R.I. — The Rhode Island Senate has filed a bill to release all records related to the investigation of a failed video game venture after state police discovered a “box of documents.”

Democratic Senate President Dominick Ruggerio tells the Providence Journal (http://bit.ly/2rH4oKO ) he believes the new information might be “critical” to the issue.

Democratic Gov. Gina Raimondo has long petitioned for records related to the criminal investigation into the state’s $75 million deal with 38 Studios, the video game company started by former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling. Schilling’s company moved to the state in 2010 and later went bankrupt.

Raimondo’s spokesperson says the governor “is very disappointed” the recently-found documents were not released.

A state police spokesperson says the additional documents will be released as soon as possible.
