U.S. Representative Reid Ribble (WI-08) today released the following statement commending Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew for the decision to feature Harriet Tubman on the newly-designed $20 bill in 2020:

"Our nation was built by the strong, principled people who stood up and fought for what they believed. Harriet Tubman is a lesson in courage, in generosity, and in the fight for equality that we can all be very proud to share with our children and grandchildren. I am glad to see her honored on the $20 bill and will look forward to seeing the final design in 2020, on the 100th anniversary of women gaining the fundamental right to vote."
