Treasury won't commit to putting Harriet Tubman on $20 bill: senator

The Trump administration hasn’t commited to an Obama-era pledge to put abolitionist and civil rights hero Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill, according to a statement from a Senate Democrat.

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) told The New York Times that the Treasury Department responded to her letter — which was questioning the status of the change originally announced by the Obama administration in April 2016 — by claiming that no designs for the $20 bill or plans to include Tubman’s image had been finalized.

“The redesign of the next currency series is still in the early stages, and neither the final designs nor all features have been finalized for the new notes,” Treasury Department assistant secretary Drew Maloney wrote to Shaheen.

“For this reason, the department is unable to provide additional information regarding the potential designs at this time.”
