ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A bipartisan group of eight senators introduce legislation to end restrictions on U.S. citizens' travel to Cuba, the first effort in Congress toward ending the U.S. embargo since President Barack Obama moved to normalize relations last month. The bill would end legal restrictions on travel to the island by U.S. citizens and legal residents, according to a statement about the senators' plans. It would also end restrictions on banking transactions related to that travel. The senators backing the bill include Republicans Jeff Flake, Jerry Moran, Michael Enzi and John Boozman, as well as Democrats Patrick Leahy, Richard Durbin, Tom Udall and Sheldon Whitehouse.
