AP sources: US weighs Cuba travel restrictions
Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON -- U.S. and congressional officials say the Obama
administration is considering easing travel restrictions to Cuba and
could announce a decision before the end of next week.

The officials said Tuesday a decision on the move to increase
"people-to-people" exchanges with the communist island has not yet been
made. They said political considerations could still hold it up.

But they said the administration is keen to expand opportunities for
American students, educators and researchers to visit Cuba. Details of
the proposed policy shift were reported Tuesday by The New York Times.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because internal
deliberations are still ongoing.
