An article in yesterday's editions incorrectly stated that Comptroller William Donald Schaefer designated a substitute to vote on his behalf during Wednesday's state Board of Public Works meeting, which he missed because of illness. In fact, Schaefer did not designate an acting comptroller, and there were only two voting members of the board at the meeting.
An article in Wednesday's Today section about the illegal hiring of nannies in the United States incorrectly reported that Lani Guinier, whom the Clinton White House dropped as a nominee to head the Justice Department's civil rights division because of a controversy over her legal writings, had failed to pay taxes on a domestic worker's earnings. A spokesman for Guinier said there was no such problem with a domestic worker, and the White House never indicated there was.
