Nancy Dorn nominated to replace O'Keefe at OMB

President Bush has nominated Nancy Dorn to take over the post of deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget, which became vacant when Sean O'Keefe left in November to become the NASA administrator.

Dorn is now on the staff of Vice President Dick Cheney, for whom she serves as legislative affairs assistant. She has had a long career in Washington under both Republican and Democrat administrations.

Before joining Cheney's staff, Dorn was the national security adviser to House Speaker Dennis J. Hastert (R-Ill.).

She became the youngest person and the first woman named assistant secretary of the Army for civil works under the first President Bush and later served as member of the Inter-American Foundation under President Clinton. She also was a principal of a Washington consulting firm.

In 1988 and 1989, Dorn served as deputy assistant secretary of State for legislative affairs under President Reagan.
