Governor names King new budget director

Governor Pataki has appointed Robert L. King, director of the Governor's Office of Regulatory Reform, as the new state budget director.

In his previous position, King led the Pataki administration's successful efforts to revolutionize regulation in New York by eliminating needless red tape and regulations.

"Bob King shares my vision of a smarter, more efficient government; a government that is committed to cutting taxes and fiscal responsibility," the Governor said.
