U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) tells Larry King it's time to replace Pres. Andrew Jackson's image on the $20 bill and put a woman's face on it.
Larry King tells Congressman Luis Gutierrez "I support you completely" for leading the charge in replacing Andrew Jackson with a woman on the twenty-dollar bill.
USA Today reports that Rep. Gutierrez proposed this switch to Congress back in May.
Gutierrez tells Larry King that "We have to be reflective of our society." He's confident that "pretty soon you and I are going to take out a twenty-dollar bill and we’re going to have a woman on that twenty-dollar bill."
An online campaign called "Women on 20s" also supports the effort — and announced that abolitionist leader and Underground Railroad conductor Harriet Tubman received the most online votes for the honor.
The congressman’s bill is called Put a Woman on the Twenty Act of 2015. It does not designate any particular woman, but instructs the secretary of the Treasury to convene a citizen panel to choose the woman who should replace Andrew Jackson as the face of the $20 bill.
