US Senators present bill to repeal Cuba blockade

A bill to repeal the trade embargo against Cuba was introduced by a group of US Senators on Friday, looking to normalize relations.

Six other Senators co-sponsored the bill in addition to Ron Wyden of Oregon, including Patrick Leahy, Dianne Feinstein, Richard Durbin, Tom Udall, Patty Murray, and Jeff Merkley. The bill aimed to repeal all the major existing laws which impose restrictions and sanctions on Cuba, including the Helms-Burton Act and the Cuban Democracy Act. Normal trade relations would be restored in their entirety.
