Mar 29, 2022

Washington, D.C. — Today, the Senate voted to confirm Nani Coloretti as Deputy Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC) Chair Rep. Judy Chu issued the following statement:

“I am so thrilled to congratulate Nani Coloretti on her confirmation to be President Bident’s Deputy Director of the Office of Management and Budget. As the agency that oversees the implementation of the funding to execute the President’s agenda, OMB is one of the most consequential offices in the Federal government. And that is why it is so significant that President Biden has elevated Ms. Coloretti to this position where, as the first AAPI in this role, she will bring her extensive experience in Federal government to ensure we are meeting the needs of all Americans. I have been proud to support Nani for years and have been so proud to follow her impressive career as she served under President Obama for almost eight years, including as Deputy Secretary of the Department of House and Urban Development, and another five years at the Department of Treasury. And I look forward to her continued success in this position. Congratulations again to Nani Coloretti and thank you to President Biden for his ongoing commitment to building a government that is truly reflective of the diversity of our country.”
