PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Members of the Rhode Island House Oversight Committee want to hear from former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling and former Republican Gov. Don Carcieri as they continue to review the 38 Studios deal.

The committee convened Thursday under new Chairwoman Karen MacBeth to discuss issues related to the state's lawsuit over the collapse of Schilling's video game company.

The panel began drafting a list of witnesses, including Schilling, Carcieri, ex-Speaker Gordon Fox and ex-Finance Chairman Steven Costantino. MacBeth said witnesses would first be asked to appear voluntarily.

The committee is also seeking the public release of depositions in the case. The Rhode Island judge hearing the case is expected to hear arguments on Friday.

38 Studios got a $75 million loan guarantee from the state's economic development agency. It later went bankrupt.
