Urgent: Congress to vote on Cuban Embargo--Take Action!

At this moment, the House of Representatives is considering amendments to the Transportation/Treasury Appropriations bill (H.R. 5576). The following amendments concerning Cuba will be voted on:

-Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) Amendment- to rollback restrictions on educational travel to Cuba

-Rep. Jerry Moran (R-KS) Amendment- to facilitate agricultural trade between the U.S. and Cuba

-Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) Amendment- to defund enforcement of the economic embargo on Cuba

Passing these amendments is an important step in normalizing relations with Cuba. Please call your Representative right away and ask him/her to vote in favor of the above amendments to the Transportation/Treasury Appropriations Bill (H.R. 5576).
