McCoy Stadium

The Senate Finance Committee is scheduled to meet Thursday to consider legislation to provide public support for a new stadium for the Pawtucket Red Sox.

The committee is scheduled to meet Thursday, Jan. 4, at the rise of the Senate (about 4: 30 p.m.) in Room 313 on the third floor of the State House. If the Senate session for Thursday is canceled due to inclement weather, the meeting will be postponed to Tuesday, Jan. 9, at the rise in Room 313.

The committee will consider a resolution (2018-S 2001), introduced by Senate Finance Committee Chairman William J. Conley Jr. (D-Dist. 18, East Providence, Pawtucket) that would authorize the state to enter into lease and financing agreements in connection with a ballpark.
