Cuba Update

President Obama has asked Congress to take Cuba off the list of countries that sponsor terrorism.  The President made a formal recommendation to Congress, setting in motion a 45-day review process during which lawmakers can take steps to block the move.  However, Congress is not expected to block it and lawmakers would have to enact a joint resolution to do so, which the President could then veto.  Removing Cuba from the list will eliminate some sanctions, including restrictions on foreign assistance, a ban on defense exports and other financial regulations, though the embargo will remain in place.
