Florida: agents challenge law on Cuba travel

A group of travel agents in Florida sued the state over a new law requiring agents who book trips to Cuba to post a USD 250,000 bond and disclose their clients’ names. Earlier this month, a federal judge lifted the measure temporarily to consider the law’s legality. Before the measure was signed into law in June all travel agencies were required to pay the state a one-time USD 25,000 bond. Despite the recent ruling, the legal battle between the travel agents and Florida lawmakers is not over: Some legal experts say the law oversteps the bounds of state authority.
