Earlier this evening, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid scheduled a vote on the DADT repeal bill for Saturday. This is what we had been waiting for. HRC President Joe Solmonese issued the following statement.
“We are gratified that the Majority Leader has scheduled the cloture vote on the DADT repeal bill for Saturday. It’s time that senators vote their consciences and move our military and our country forward. This has always been an issue of integrity for our military and the brave gay and lesbian service members who serve our country every day. America is ready for a vote and there’s no need for anymore waiting.”
