WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement tonight on the withdrawal of Neera Tanden's nomination as Director of the Office of Management and Budget:

“I am disappointed that Neera Tanden has withdrawn her nomination, and I believe she would have been an excellent Director of the Office of Management and Budget.  I commend her for stepping up to take on that role, and I understand her decision.  I am certain that she will play an important role in the Biden-Harris Administration, and I look forward to working with her in whatever capacity that may be.  Neera is a talented, smart, and dedicated American who has much to contribute in service to her country.”
