Seattle Times Profiles Congressman Nethercutt's Role as Leading Advocate of Sanctions Reform

Last Sunday's Seattle Times contains an excellent profile of Congressman George Nethercutt's (R-Wash.) role as the leading advocate of sanctions reform in the U.S. Congress. The article discusses Congressman Nethercutt's tireless and critical role in the passage of the Trade Sanctions Reform and Export Enhancement Act of 2000 (TSRA) (Title IX of H.R. 5426, as enacted by Public Law 106-387), commonly known as TSRA, which codified the lifting of U.S. unilateral sanctions on commercial sales of food, agricultural commodities, medicine and medical devices to embargoed countries, including Cuba. The reforms enacted by TSRA have led to a significant increase in the export of agricultural, medical and other humanitarian products to Cuba and other embargoed countries.

Congressman Nethercutt is the Republican candidate for U.S. Senator from Washington State and will face incumbent Patty Murray in November.
