"Dont Ask, Dont Tell" Repeal Act of 2010-House Vote

House Roll Call No. 638
111th Congress, 2nd Session

Passed: 250-175 (see complete tally)
On December 15, 2010, the House passed, by a vote of 250-175, a measure (House Amendment to the Senate Amendment to H.R. 2965) repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (DADT). Under the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" Repeal Act of 2010, repeal of DADT will not take effect until the president, Secretary of Defense and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff certify that the new law will not have a negative impact on readiness, recruitment, retention, and other key factors affecting the military. The ACLU supported this legislation because DADT is a discriminatory and unconstitutional law. Service men and women who are lesbian, gay, or bisexual deserve nothing less than their full honor and integrity that will come with the end of DADT.
