Sen. Shaheen Calls for Harriet Tubman on $10 Bill

Jul 9, 2015

Senator Jeanne Shaheen has introduced legislation to put abolitionist Harriet Tubman on the $10 dollar bill.

The legislation was referred to the Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs yesterday.

The Treasury Department announced last month it would put a woman on the $10 dollar bill in the year 2020.

Shaheen had introduced legislation in April to put a woman on the $20, but the Treasury chose the $10 because it had already been scheduled for a redesign.
