MIAMI- A new report finds the president has broad authority to continue easing sanctions against Cuba without violating the congressionally mandated U.S. embargo.
The report released Tuesday by Washington-based attorney Stephen Propst was commissioned by the moderate, business-backed Cuba Study Group.
Cuban authorities announced last September they were opening the island's Marxist economy to a limited amount of private enterprise.
Propst' review found President Barack Obama could authorize certain services to be imported from Cuba, such as those provided by its web-based entrepreneurs. He also maintains Obama could create more general travel licenses to the island, making it easier for those working with the country's fledgling business class.
