541. 7/23/2002

“IN THE HOUSE, on July 23 [2002], three amendments to Treasury-Postal Appropriations bill (TPO) passed that ease elements of the Cuban embargo…In a significant defeat for House embargo supporters, an amendment to TPO offered by Rep. Porter Goss (R-FL), which would have required Presidential certification that Cuba is not engaged in international terrorism before any changes to the travel ban take effect, lost by 182-247.” [Con Embargo]
