(AP) – A day after moving to nullify the Bush administration’s new rules restricting family travel to Cuba , the House on Wednesday voted to remove barriers to agriculture sales and student exchanges in the island nation. But, as in past years, actions by both the House and Senate to ease decades of economic and social sanctions imposed on Cuba are expected to make little headway against an administration determined not to make life easier for the Fidel Castro government. The White House has threatened to veto a $90 billion Transportation and Treasury Department spending bill if it contains any language to weaken sanctions. The bill, for fiscal 2005 programs, passed 397-12.
