Cuba Travel Bill in Congress

Local agrarian Jeff Ensminger from is sending around this call to action for Triangle residents:

CUBA Travel Bill H.R. 874

Please contact David Price's office in D.C. and ask that he Co-Sponsor and support this bill. Co-Sponsor is critical, he did it last year but he needs to be asked by constituents and he'll do it again. This takes minutes, please take the time.

Phone: (202) 225-1784 [call today]
Fax: (202) 225-2014

When/if you call a suggested talking point is:
I want to thank Congressman Price for supporting past Cuba-Related bills that have been before the House. I am asking now that he consider co-sponsorship of HR 874, and support this bill so that open dialogue and engagement may occur.

This bill will reinstate people to people exchange, make possible travel by families, increase amounts and times they are able to contribute to their families, loosen travel for our trade in Cuba in AG sales and reinstate academic travel without the current prohibitive restrictions.

Change is coming to Cuba. Your voice is needed now.
