Biden to Nominate Shalanda Young as Budget Director

WASHINGTON -- President Biden said Wednesday he intends to nominate Shalanda Young, the acting director of the Office of Management and Budget, to become the agency's permanent leader after months without one.

Ms. Young, a deputy director who has been the interim leader since spring, would officially take the helm at a critical time for the office, which oversees the federal budget and shapes a host of regulations. On top of implementing a $1.9 trillion pandemic relief package and a $1 trillion infrastructure bill, the administration expects to soon pass a more than $2 trillion social-spending package that is core to the president's economic agenda.

The post has languished for months as one of the few high-level openings in the administration after the White House in March pulled its initial pick for budget director, Neera Tanden, who drew bipartisan criticism in part over vitriolic tweets targeting congressional members from both parties.

Members of Congress and administration officials have portrayed Ms. Young, in contrast, as having enough support from both Democrats and Republicans to gain Senate confirmation, and several lawmakers had pushed for her nomination. Ms. Young would be the first Black woman to hold the post.

The nomination was reported earlier by The Washington Post. (1)
