A Senate Committee has passed legislation aimed at boosting agricultural trade with Cuba. In an article published on July 27, the most recent efforts of Congress to normalize relations with Cuba are discussed. 

Many lawmakers like Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) have sponsored legislation that would increase trade with Cuba, something that many on the hill feel would be beneficial for their home state businesses. Other representatives, including many from South Florida like Marco Rubio, are still working to thwart efforts to make business with Cuba possible.

Jason Poblete, former Congressional hill staffer and an international law and federal regulatory attorney at Poblete Tamargo LLP, spoke with McClatchy DC on the various measures being taken on both the Senate and House floors.

Though bills may make it through various committees, they will also have to make it through the House or Senate side with amendments intact in order for the legislation to be successful.
