The text of H.R. 214 has not yet been received from GPO
Bills are generally sent to the Library of Congress from the Government Printing Office a day or two after they are introduced on the floor of the House or Senate. Delays can occur when there are a large number of bills to prepare or when a very large bill has to be printed.
Latest Major Action: Introduced on 1/4/2013. Referred to House committee.
Status: Referred to the Committee on Foreign Affairs, and in addition to the Committees on Ways and Means, Energy and Commerce, Financial Services, the Judiciary, Oversight and Government Reform, and Agriculture, for a period to be subsequently determined by the Speaker, in each case for consideration of such provisions as fall within the jurisdiction of the committee concerned.
Come back to Cuba Journal in about a week. As soon as the Government Printing Office prints the bill, it will be posted here.
Contact your two U.S. Senators and U.S. House Representative and ask them to support and/or co-sponsor H.R. 214.
