This report discusses the recent developments and initiatives in the U.S. restrictions on travel and remittances with Cuba. "Several additional initiatives have been introduced in the 111th Congress that would ease restrictions on travel to Cuba. […] On March 11, 2009, President Obama signed into law the Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009 (P.L. 111-8), which included two provisions easing restrictions on family travel to Cuba and travel related to the marketing and sale of agricultural and medical goods to Cuba." The report also discusses the current permissible travel to Cuba, current restrictions on remittances, arguments for lifting Cuba travel restrictions, and arguments for maintaining Cuba travel restrictions.
