New York Gov. David Paterson is creating a Cabinet to manage the economic-stimulus funds for the state. Timothy Gilchrist, deputy secretary for economic development and infrastructure, will lead the New York State Economic Recovery and Reinvestment Cabinet. "Now that the Senate has passed the economic-recovery bill, I encourage both houses to work quickly to reach a compromise, and will make the distribution of these funds a top priority," Paterson said.
