Where’s Steven Palazzo? Congressmen elusive for some Coast constituents

“Senators Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., and Thad Cochran, R-Miss., vice chairman and chairman, respectively, of the Senate Appropriations Committee, will lead a five-member congressional delegation to Cuba and Colombia, Feb. 19-24,” Cochran’s office said in joint statement from the senators.

“In part, the purpose of the working trip to Cuba is to discuss progress in, and future opportunities for, U.S.-Cuban cooperation on a wide range of topics, including foreign trade, migration, human rights, and property claims. In Colombia, the delegation expects to gain information on the peace agreement between the Government of Colombia and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia and its significance for U.S.-Colombian relations.”
