PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - The head of the House committee looking into Rhode Island’s failed deal with 38 Studios says she has invited ex-Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling to testify, and if he doesn’t come, she’ll follow up with a subpoena.

Rep. Karen MacBeth on Tuesday released the Oct. 29 letter to Schilling’s lawyer.

Schilling moved his video game company to Providence from Massachusetts after receiving a $75 million state loan guarantee in 2010. It ran out of money in 2012, leaving taxpayers on the hook.

His lawyer did not immediately return an email seeking comment.

House Speaker Nicholas Mattiello says he’ll issues a subpoena if asked by the committee.

Schilling is one of several people being sued by the state’s economic development agency over the deal.

A criminal investigation into the deal continues.
