CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire is moving forward with efforts to sharpen its focus on economic development by dividing the Department of Resources and Economic Development.

The agency is splitting into the Department of Business and Economic Affairs and the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.

Republican Gov. Chris Sununu on Wednesday nominated Taylor Caswell to serve as the new commissioner of the Department of Business and Economic Affairs, while Jeff Rose, the current commissioner of the former agency, will take over the natural and cultural affairs post.

The Executive Council also confirmed Victoria Cimino, head of the division of tourism and travel, to be the interim commissioner of the new department until the new commissioner is confirmed.

Caswell, of Littleton, is currently executive director of the New Hampshire Community Development Finance Authority.
