    HAVANA — Four U.S. House members have met with an American government
    subcontractor who is serving a 15-year prison sentence in Cuba.

    The delegation includes U.S. Reps. Emanuel Cleaver of Missouri, Sam Farr
    and Barbara Lee of California and Gregory Meeks of New York.

    Cleaver says they are hoping to start negotiations on securing the
    release of Alan Gross, a Maryland native.

    Lee says it is time for both countries to “make a serious commitment” to
    serious negotiations.

    The delegation also met Monday with Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez.

    Gross was arrested in 2009 after he was caught setting up hard-to-detect
    Internet networks for Cuba’s small Jewish community on a U.S. government
    contract. Havana considers such programs to be an affront to its
    sovereignty.
