Biden nominates Shalanda Young to head Office of Management and Budget

President Joe Biden nominated Shalanda Young Wednesday to serve as the director of the Office of Management and Budget.

Young, who currently serves as the acting OMB director, would be the first black woman to hold that post if confirmed by the Senate. The president also nominated Nani Coloretti to serve as OMB’s deputy director.

BIDEN RESISTS CALLS FROM CAPITOL HILL TO NOMINATE YOUNG FOR OMB DIRECTOR

Biden previously sought to install Neera Tanden atop OMB but later withdrew her nomination following heavy criticism from Republicans over her past work at the Center for American Progress and attacks against conservative politicians on social media. Some liberals were also critical of her corporate ties and treatment of Bernie Sanders supporters.

Tanden would go on to land a position among Biden’s White House senior staff. Young, on the other hand, was previously confirmed as deputy director with 13 Republican votes this past spring.

Her nomination comes as the administration and Democrat leadership hope to move Biden’s roughly $2 trillion social spending bill through the Senate before the end of the year. Prior to moving to OMB, Young served as the staff director for the House Appropriations Committee and worked with Republicans and Democrats to enact roughly $3 trillion in pandemic aid.
