Governor Hogan Urges Sec. Mnuchin Not to Delay Tubman $20 Bill


Maryland Governor Larry Hogan has released a letter, urging U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to not further delay the release of a 20 dollar bill featuring Maryland abolitionist Harriet Tubman.

The Governor said “citizens across Maryland the country will instead have to wait nearly a decade for this new bill to reach general circulation.” He continued on the legacy of Tubman: “Dorchester County, Maryland is incredibly proud to be a steward of Harriet Tubman’s lasting legacy, but her influence reaches far beyond the borders of our great state.”

The Federal Treasury announced a decision to delay the release of a Harriet Tubman twenty-dollar bill, which was originally announced during the Obama administration.
