House Passes DADT Repeal
Posted on Dec 15, 2010

The next formidable frontier, however, is the Senate. —KA
Los Angeles Times:
The House vote on the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy—essentially a repeat of a similar vote in May—puts fresh pressure on the Senate leaders to prioritize the repeal as they struggle to schedule votes on a handful of last-chance priorities for Democrats.
The final tally was 250 to 175, mostly along party lines.
