House to vote on repeal of don't ask, don't tell
Tuesday - 12/14/2010, 1:37pm EST
Rep. Patrick Murphy of Pennsylvania is introducing the bill Tuesday. Hoyer, a Maryland Democrat, said he will bring the bill to the House floor soon.
The House has already passed a defense authorization bill that included a repeal of the policy, but that bill stalled in the Senate.
Hoyer said Murphy's bill would mirror an effort in the Senate to pass a stand-alone measure. Sen. John McCain, an Arizona Republican, has been among the leaders of the opposition, arguing that such a significant personnel policy change shouldn't happen when the country is fighting two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
