MIAMI — A Florida congressman wants to reverse the Obama administration's steps to allow more family travel and remittances to Cuba.

The House Committee on Appropriations on Thursday approved U.S. Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart's amendment to repeal regulatory changes that loosened the severe limits on remittances and travel to the island imposed by former President George W. Bush.

The amendment is attached to a Treasury department funding bill. It now heads to the House floor. If it passes, it would still have to be reconciled with the Senate version.

The nonpartisan Cuba Study group on Friday condemned the move. It says the amendment will keep relatives from being able to visit and assist loved ones on the island. Diaz-Balart, a Republican, says it'll keep money out of the hands of the Cuban government.
