WASHINGTON – President Joe Biden said in a video released on Wednesday that he will nominate Saranda Young as director of the White House Office of Management and Budget.

Yang currently serves as the acting director of the office, which plays a key role in advising the president on the federal budget and monitoring how taxpayers’ money is used.

In addition to Yang, Biden also stated that he will nominate Nani Coloretti, an executive of the non-profit organization, to serve as Deputy Director of OMB under Yang’s leadership.

At the time of the nomination, the Biden administration asked Congress to approve the spending of two transformative bills of more than $2 trillion. Part of the effort to promote the legislation will convince the public that the money will be used wisely and not wasted.

Yang recently served as the staff director of the House Appropriations Committee, where she has spent most of her career. The powerful committee is the first stop of Congress’s huge annual appropriations bill, and the staff there have an in-depth understanding of how the federal budget is allocated.

Yang is the second candidate selected by Biden to lead OMB. He first nominated Neera Tanden, the long-term director of the Left-leaning Center for American Progress, for this job. But Tanden’s record of personal attacks on Republicans and progressive senators on social media derailed her confirmation.

Unlike Tanden, Yang enjoys broad bipartisan support on Capitol Hill. In March, the Senate voted 63 to 37 to confirm Yang as Deputy Director of OMB. More than a dozen Republicans voted for her.

If she is confirmed as the director of OMB, Yang will become the first black woman to take on the role normally played by white men. She will also become the third woman to lead OMB.

Coloretti, who Biden chose to serve as deputy director under Yang’s leadership, is currently Senior Vice President of Finance and Business Strategy at Urban Institute, an economic policy think tank widely regarded as the center-left.

During the Obama administration, Coloretti served as Deputy Minister of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for three years. She also worked in the Ministry of Finance for five years, where she helped establish the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

Coloretti’s HUD position needs to be confirmed by the Senate in 2014. The House of Representatives voted 68-28 in favor of her confirmation.

After Tanden’s nomination failed this spring, the Senate has confirmed Young and Croleti with a considerable advantage. This is a key factor in their nomination. The White House emphasized this in its announcement.

They also continue to fulfill Biden’s promise to allow the main staff of the White House to form a diverse team. Coloretti is a Filipino-American, and if she is confirmed, she will become the first Asian-American woman to serve as deputy director of OMB.
