Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said today that designs for an updated $20 bill featuring Harriet Tubman will be delayed by eight years. The unveiling scheduled in 2020, had been timed to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote.

Mnuchin told lawmakers on the House Financial Services Committee that the redesign process, which started during the Obama administration, would be delayed until 2028. Mnuchin said he would instead focus on anti-counterfeiting upgrades to the $10 and $50 bills.

Rep. Ayanna Pressley who sits on the House Financial Services Committee tweeted the following after his comments:
