OpenCongress Summary

Would require the chiefs of the four branches of the military to sign off before the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" takes effect. The current repeal law passed by Congress in 2010 already requires the President, the secretary of Defense and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Marine Corps Commandant General James Amos has already said publicly that he does not support the repeal.
