The Biden administration is looking to replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill with Harriet Tubman, an idea and move that was first proposed during the Obama administration. 

Tubman was an abolitionist leader who created the underground railroad which helped slaves escape to a free life as she did in the 1800s. 

The administration is trying to speed up the process of this idea and get the bills released soon, according to CNN.

"It's important that our notes, our money -- if people don't know what a note is -- reflect the history and diversity of our country, and Harriet Tubman's image gracing the new $20 note would certainly reflect that," the White House press secretary Jen Psaki stated on Monday.

A design for this new bill was created and completed in 2016, but the Trump administration put a pause on the distribution. The Treasury Secretary at the time, Steven Mnuchin explained that no decisions had been made on whether or not the bill was going to be changed. 

Some Americans prefer her to not be on the $20 bill because it would be an insult to her and not what she would have wanted. 

While others are excited about the possible change. 

When this change is expected to occur is unknown.
