(Providence, RI)  --  Another hearing in the Rhode Island House is set for Tuesday to discuss the latest version of the deal to finance a new Pawtucket Red Sox stadium. The bill, supported by House Speaker Nicholas Mattiello, removes a state safety net on the potential borrowing authorized in the Senate version of the bill, passed earlier this year. Mattiello told "The Providence Journal" on Friday that he is not comfortable with some of the changes the city of Pawtucket has proposed to the legislation, including the expansion of a dedicated tax zone to help fund the stadium.
