Mikulski, both D-Md., were joined Thursday by U.S. Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, both D-N.Y., in introducing Senate Bill 247 at the start of the 113th Congress. Tubman is the most famous "conductor" of the resistance network known as the Underground Railroad along which people escaping from slavery were guided north to freedom.
