Congressional Black Caucus today expressed its wholehearted support for Shalanda Young as Director of the Office of Management and Budget.  If confirmed, Young would be the first African-American woman to lead the OMB, one of the most important federal government agencies.

“The Congressional Black Caucus takes tremendous pride in recommending Shalanda Young as Director of the Office of Management and Budget,” said CBC Chair Joyce Beatty.  “Having worked closely with her over a number of years, the CBC has come to rely on her keen intellect, profound knowledge of the federal budget process, appropriations, and legislative processes. Shalanda knows that our budget reflects our values as a nation.

If chosen, her legislative savvy, intellectual stamina, and broad knowledge of federal agencies will prove to be a tremendous asset to the Biden-Harris Administration.  Her leadership of the OMB would be historic and would send a strong message that this Administration is ready and willing to work with Congress to craft budgets that meet the critical challenges which face our nation, and can secure broad, bipartisan support.”

Shalanda Young has been thoroughly vetted for the position of Deputy Director and has received excellent reviews from both Democratic and Republican members of the Senate.
