President Bush said he hopes to lift trade restrictions on Russia. Bush announced his intention to work with Congress to end application of the Jackson-Vanik Amendment while hosting Russian President Vladimir Putin in Washington on Tuesday. Adopted in 1974, the Jackson-Vanik Amendment links U.S. trade to Soviet willingness to relax restrictions on emigration. It helped ensure the emigration of tens of thousands of Soviet Jews.
