Cuba Travel

May 2nd, 2008 by Mike Vasilinda

It will soon be tougher for approved travelers to go to Cuba. Visits are allowed for family visits and for journalists. But new legislation will require travel agencies that arrange such trips to post large bonds and to make frequent reports to Homeland security. Sponsor David Rivera of Miami says the legislation is really about terrorism.

I think most Floridians will recognize that travel to a terrorist country represents a unique risk to the safety and security of our citizenry and thats why youve got to have public oversight and government regulation of those who are engaging in business with these terrorist governments, Riviera said.

Lobbyists for the travel agencies say the legislation is likely to drive some companies out of business.
