Earlier today, the House of Representatives passed the FY 2011 National Defense Act that includes Congressman Murphy's amendment to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." The amendment, which passed last night, dismantles the policy only after the Pentagon completes its review process and after military leaders certify that repeal would not harm national security or military readiness.

"Today's vote was one more step toward repealing Don't Ask, Don't Tell and ensuring that every American has the same opportunity I did to defend our nation," said Rep. Murphy.
