  1. 0 Votes

    On December 18th, 2010, the U.S. Senate voted 65-31 to repeal the don’t ask don’t tell policy. The actual date of the full repeal is uncertain due to a few things that need to happen first.  The military will need to revise policies and regulations that govern everything from leadership training to standards of conduct, and before the policy officially ends, the president, the secretary of defense and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff must sign a letter certifying that the changes wouldn’t affect military readiness.  Full repeal would take effect 60 days after that certification letter is transmitted to the congressional armed-services committees.
