ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - In New York government news, Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo has picked a new leader for the board that oversees the State University of New York.

Merryl Tisch is a philanthropist and former teacher who led the state's Board of Regents for seven years. Cuomo called her the "perfect" person to lead SUNY's board.

Meanwhile, a report from state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli finds that 25 local governments around the state face potentially serious fiscal stress.

The report looked at the financial health of hundreds of local governments, including an analysis of budget deficits, cash reserves and other indicators.

Local governments listed as fiscally stressed include Nassau and Suffolk counties on Long Island, Westchester County and the city of Niagara Falls.
