“In January 1999, President [William Bill] Clinton expanded the categories and streamlined the issuance of licenses for those who seek to travel to Cuba; allowed Americans to send $1200 per year in remittances to Cuba; broadened the categories of groups to whom sale of food and medical products could be made; and authorized direct charter passenger flights to Cuba from U.S. cities other than Miami. Charter flights now depart from Los Angeles and New York and fly to Havana and other Cuban cities.” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.] [Con Embargo]
