Monday marks the launch of the "Engage Cuba Minnesota State Council." The coalition behind the council is made up of private companies and organizations working to end the travel and trade embargo on Cuba. The council will include agribusiness and Cuban-American leaders. U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar and U.S. Rep. Tom Emmer will both be at the council's launch. The two accompanied President Barack Obama on his recent historic trip to Cuba.
