U.S. Rep. Collin Peterson and U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, both Minnesota Democrats, want more food and other exports to Cuba.
Existing law restricts sales to the communist island country.
“American famers can greatly benefit from access to new markets in Cuba at a time when our economy needs it most,” Klobuchar said. “This bill will create jobs by promoting U.S. agriculture exports. In addition, Cubans and Americans will be able to engage in open communication, an important step towards improving relations between our two nations.”
