The Hawaii Senate is confirming Kalbert Young as director for the Department of Budget and Finance and Fred Pablo as director for the Department of Taxation.

The Senate unanimously approved them Tuesday as members of Democratic Gov. Neil Abercrombie’s Cabinet.

Young will be responsible for managing a state budget with a projected shortfall of about $800 million over the next two years.

Pablo will handle the state’s tax collections.

Young was Maui County’s finance chief since 2004, and Pablo previously worked with him as Maui’s budget director.

They are the sixth and seventh of Abercrombie’s Cabinet nominees to be approved by the Senate. None has encountered much opposition.
