Report: Obama could ease more Cuba sanctions
The Associated Press
MIAMI — A new report finds the president has broad authority to
continue easing sanctions against Cuba without violating the
congressionally mandated U.S. embargo.
The report released Tuesday by Washington-based attorney Stephen Propst,
was commissioned at the behest of the moderate, business-backed Cuba
Cuban authorities announced in September they were opening the island's
Marxist economy to a limited amount of private enterprise. Propst'
review found President Barack Obama could authorize certain services to
be imported from Cuba, such as those provided by Cuban web-based
entrepreneurs. He also maintains Obama could create more general travel
licenses to the island, making it easier for those working with the
country's fledgling business class.
