Early report: Lawmakers propose tightening Cuba travel and remittances rules

Mauricio Claver-Carone of Capitol Hill Cubans is reporting the news:
The House Committee on Appropriations has adopted language in its must-pass FY'12 Financial Services Appropriations bill, which funds the Treasury Department, to repeal the Obama Administration's regulations on Cuban-American travel and remittances and restores the reasonable caps and limitations in existence prior to April 2009.
This effectively eliminates the single largest source of revenue for the Castro regime and sends a strong message that its brutal repression -- including the taking of an American hostage since December 2009 -- is unacceptable.
See my interview with Claver-Carone which took place before today's developments.
