Cuba Travel: Best Chance Since 2003
This is it. The opportunity we have all been waiting for. The House Committee on Foreign Affairs (HCFA) will consider HR 4645 on Wednesday, September 29, at noon. This means that they will be considering whether to lift the travel ban on Cuba . . . or not. We can win this, just like we won in the House Committee on Agriculture . . . but we need YOU, again! You can take action here.
