"We're very pleased that President Obama has made these additional, commonsense improvements to the Cuban sanction regulations. This is further progress towards normalized relations that will benefit both the American and Cuban people.

But more has to happen. It's time for Congress to publicly and comprehensively review our nation's Cuba policy, which seems out of step with geopolitical realities, public opinion and America's economic interests. Until Congress acts to lift the embargo, U.S. equipment distributors and manufacturers and other businesses cannot take advantage of opportunities to help upgrade Cuba's infrastructure and help the Cuban people build a better future."
