Hanson picked as stimulus funds point man

Email

Minnesota Finance Commissioner Tom Hanson is Gov. Tim Pawlenty's pick to coordinate federal stimulus funds.

The Mahnomen native is a long-time Pawlenty advisor and runs the Minnesota Management and Budget Department.

Democratic legislative leaders encouraged Pawlenty to name a point person to coordinate the billions of dollars Minnesota should receive beginning in late February, but they wanted someone from outside the administration.
