Legislation would require Harriet Tubman replace Jackson on the $20 bill

Capitol Review

Remember that plan to replace the face on the $20 bill?

During the Obama administration, the idea was to replace Andrew Jackson with Harriet Tubman, who would be the first African-American woman to appear on U.S. currency.

However, the plan has since stalled, with President Trump being a fan of Jackson. But some in Congress think otherwise.

Morgan Wright reports lawmakers have introduced legislation that would require the Treasury Department put Harriet Tubman on the $20 by 2020.
