Treasury delaying announcement of woman going on $10 bill

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The country will have to wait a bit longer to find out who will become the first woman on U.S. paper currency in more than a century.

Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew had said he would announce a decision by the end of this year naming the woman who will replace Alexander Hamilton's portrait on the $10 bill.

But late Friday, Treasury issued a statement saying the announcement was being delayed until sometime in 2016. Treasury says the delay will give the government time to "carefully review and consider a range of options" for the currency redesign.

Lew set off a furor in June when he announced he was replacing Hamilton's portrait on the $10 bill with that of a woman.
