SLDN: 111th Congress introduces bill to repeal "don't ask don't tell"; more details forthcoming
Earlier today, Rep. Ellen Tauscher (D-CA) introduced legislation to guarantee the right of people to serve in the military regardless of known sexual orientation. The announcement came in a broadcast email from Servicemembers Legal Defense Network, and was introduced by Ellen Tasucher (D-CA), and is apparently called the Military Readiness Enhancement Act. The bill is not yet on govtrack and the HR number was not yet announced. Tauscher has introduced several other bills concerning the military in the 111th Congress (2009-2010) .
I'll supply the govtrack or Thomas references as soon as I have it. If a visitor knows it, please comment.
I'm told that SLDN will hold a rally on the West Lawn of the Capitol in Washington DC Friday March 13. Details will be added as known.
