    White House press secretary Jen Psaki Monday said President Joe Biden was “eager,” to visit Texas in the wake of last week’s devastating winter storms and said the visit could happen as early as this week.

    “He has been getting updates from his national security team over the course of the weekend and he wants to go and show his support,” Psaki said.

    The icy blast that hit Texas and much of the Deep South ruptured water mains, knocked out power to millions of utility customers and contributed to nearly 80 deaths.

    The White House also defended Biden’s nomination of Neera Tanden to lead the White House Office of Management and Budget as moderate Republican Sens. Susan Collins of Maine and Mitt Romney of Utah said they would vote against confirming her.

    “I think the fact that the president nominated her to lead the budget, to be running OMB reflects his view that she’s the right person to be in his cabinet,” Psaki said.

    Utah is a state in the western United States.

    The territory of modern Utah has been inhabited by various indigenous groups for thousands of years, including the ancient Puebloans, the Navajo, and the Ute. The Spanish were the first Europeans to arrive in the mid-16th century, though the region’s difficult geography and climate made it a peripheral part of New Spain and later Mexico.

    Disputes between the dominant Mormon community and the federal government delayed Utah’s admission as a state; only after the outlawing of polygamy was it admitted as the 45th, in 1896.

    A little more than half of all Utahns are Mormons, the vast majority of whom are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), which has its world headquarters in Salt Lake City. Utah is the only state where most of the population belongs to a single church. The LDS Church greatly influences Utahn culture, politics, and daily life, though since the 1990s the state has become more religiously diverse as well as secular.

    The state has a highly diversified economy, with major sectors including transportation, education, information technology and research, government services, and mining and a major tourist destination for outdoor recreation.

    A 2012 Gallup national survey found Utah overall to be the “best state to live in the future” based on 13 forward-looking measurements including various economic, lifestyle, and health-related outlook metrics.
