House of Representatives Repeals DADT

302

In Washington, the House of Representatives repealed the military’s “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” (DADT) policy in late May by a vote of 234-194, The vote came hours after the Senate Armed Services Committee approved a similar measure to repeal the policy that prohibits service by out gays and lesbians.

The repeal will be allowed sixty days after a pentagon report, due by Dec 1, is filed on the ramifications of allowing gays to serve openly in the military if approved in the Senate too.
