      President Joe Biden announced yesterday he is nominating Shalanda Young to serve as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. This key administration position has gone unfilled for months, according to washingtonpost.com.

      If confirmed by the Senate, Young will become the first Black person to fill the director position. The budget office works with federal agencies to coordinate and oversee the execution of spending programs approved by Congress.

      To quote washingtonpost.com:

      Young has served as the acting director of the Office of Management and Budget since the spring, but the White House will now tap her to officially lead the office as the administration faces multiplying challenges in implementing its economic agenda.

      She must be confirmed by the Senate to serve in the role, but she was confirmed to her current role by a 63-to-37 vote in March with support from more than a dozen Republicans.

      Young, a longtime veteran of the House Appropriations Committee staff, has enjoyed broad bipartisan support and the backing of top Democratic leaders. Young went on maternity leave this fall. She would be the first Black woman to lead the office.

      “In her eight months as acting director of OMB, she’s continued to impress me and congressional leaders as well,” Biden said in a pre-recorded video announcing the nomination. “Shalanda will not only be a tremendously qualified director, she’ll also be a historic director.”
