US Congress Eases Restrictions on Cuban-Americans

HAVANA TIMES, March 11 — A bill that will allow Cuban-Americans to travel to Cuba once every year instead of every three years was approved by the US Senate on Tuesday. The legislation, attached to a $410 billion appropriations bill, also passed in the House of Representatives. It is expected to be signed into law by President Obama.

The legislation will also make contact between business people of the two nations a little easier but the general travel ban that prohibits other US citizens from visiting Cuba and the nearly 50-year economic blockade on the island will remain in place.
