Local News

(WSYR-TV) — You may have heard talks about Harriet Tubman replacing Andrew Jackson on the 20 dollar bill. But before that could happen, Representative John Katko is joining other lawmakers to propose a coin.

Katko is one of two New York congress members introducing a bill to have the treasury create coins celebrating the abolitionist’s 200th birthday.

If the bill is approved, thousands of five dollar gold coins, one-dollar silver coins, and clad half-dollar coins will be released.
