WASHINGTON — PNSR is pleased to welcome Jim Nussle, former director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), to the project’s Guiding Coalition. Mr. Nussle has had a distinguished public service career, specializing in budgetary issues.

Mr. Nussle served as Director of OMB from September 2007 through January 2009, overseeing a broad portfolio of presidential initiatives, from the chief executive’s fiscal agenda to policy decisions. In this capacity, he served in the National Security Council, Homeland Security Council, National Economic Council, and National Domestic Policy Council.

Prior to leading OMB, Mr. Nussle represented Iowa’s 1st district in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1991 to 2007. As a member of Congress, he served on the Ways and Means, Agriculture, Banking, and Budget Committees. Mr. Nussle chaired the Budget Committee for three successive terms starting in 2001.

After leaving government, Mr. Nussle founded The Nussle Group, a government relations and strategic consulting firm based in Alexandria, Virginia.

“I am very pleased to welcome Jim to the Guiding Coalition of the Project on National Security Reform,” PNSR CEO and President James R. Locher III said. “His knowledge and expertise of budgetary issues, in both the legislative and executive branches, are important assets to PNSR. His advice will be invaluable as PNSR refines its recommendations on improving the link between resource allocation and strategic objectives.”
