Economic development czar confirmation delayed

ALBANY -- The scheduled Senate confirmation of the Cuomo administration’s top economic development official was postponed this morning.

Kenneth Adams, tapped by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo to become president and chief executive officer of the Empire State Development Corp., has to put off his appearance before three Senate confirmation committees before an expected full Senate vote this afternoon. A Cuomo spokesman said Adams could not make it to Albany today because of an illness in his family.

Adams is the former president of the Business Council of New York State.
