The Walker-Mallott administration has nominated Tlingit civil-rights leader Elizabeth Peratrovich to be on the new $10 bill.
The U.S. Treasury is collecting nominations of women who were champions for democracy to put on the redesigned note. The governor and lieutenant governor say Peratrovich fits the description well.
Walker Press Secretary Katie Marquette says Peratrovich is an obvious nominee.
