According to reports, Jay-Z and Beyonce’s controversial anniversary trip to Cuba has led to a bill in their name, introduced by congressional Republicans.
Florida republican, Ander Crenshaw said the couple’s trip is an example of legal loopholes to travel to Cuba, which has been subject to a stern United States trade restriction since the Kennedy administration.
In a statement given, Rep. Crenshaw says:
I think that if we’re going to say that we have this policy in place that relates to travel in Cuba, that it ought to be enforced, and that becomes a grey area where they’re probably not really following the guidelines.
If passed, the “Jay-Z and Beyonce” bill would limit funds to the Department of Treasury to approve “travel-related or other transactions incident to non-academic educational exchanges.”
