Senate to Vote on “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” Next Week
The following is an excerpt from a story by CNN:
“A military spending bill that includes the repeal of the ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy banning openly gay and lesbian soldiers will come up for Senate debate next week, according to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s office.
“Reid’s spokesman confirmed Monday that the chamber will take up the National Defense Authorization Act on September 20.
“The measure, which includes funding for military operations, also contains the controversial provision to repeal the ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy after the Pentagon concludes a review of the matter in December, and President Barack Obama, the Secretary of Defense and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff all give their approval.”
