Tanden to join White House as senior advisor - report

Neera Tanden, United States President Joe Biden's original pick for Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Director, will join the head of state's team as a senior advisor, two sources from the White House told NBC News.

She will allegedly be responsible for the administration's legal preparation for potential Republicans' attempts to overrule the Affordable Care Act and for the review into the US Digital Service's work.

Biden withdrew his nomination of Tanden for the OMB head at her personal requests after several moderate senators expressed their opposition to her naming. Shalanda Yong was eventually elected for the post.
