House Votes to Lift Cuba Travel Ban

The House of Representatives on Tuesday approved an amendment that would allow American tourists to travel to Cuba. The Cuba travel amendment, offered by Rep. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), is attached to the Treasury and Transportation Departments appropriations bill (H.R. 2989). It passed by a vote of 227-188. President Bush has said he will veto the appropriations bill if it contains the Cuban travel amendment. He agrees with those who say the best way to deal with . is deny him the American dollars he needs to fuel his repressive regime. Current law allows Americans to visit Cuba, but only if they have special permission from the U.S. government. Authorized groups include journalists, family members of Cuban nationals, humanitarian workers and students on educational missions. Previous congressional efforts to lift the U.S. ban on travel to Cuba have failed.
