The Biden administration will stop pursuing the nomination of Indian American Neera Tanden for Director of the powerful Office of Management & Budget (OBM), after Ms.

Tanden would have become the first person of colour to lead the White House budget office, which decides funding priorities and ensures that agency rules and proposed legislation are in sync with the administration’s policies and budget.

Biden on Tuesday, a copy of which was released by the White House.

She will bring valuable perspective and insight to our work,” he said as per a statement released by the White House.
