House panel tacks on anti-gay amendments to defense bill

A House defense committee approved late Wednesday a series of anti-gay amendments as part of major Pentagon budget legislation aimed at disrupting the process for repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and at demonstrating support for the Defense of Marriage Act.

ACTION ALERT: Let no one stand in the way of DADT repeal!

We cannot sit idly by as repeal opponents cook up their latest scheme to turn back the clock and keep discrimination on the books. We still have time to call HASC members and tell them to oppose this dangerous obstructionism.
