House to vote on stand-alone DADT repeal

According to Washington Blade, the House bill will be identical to the Senate version. The house is poised to move forward first on the legislation, possibly as early as tomorrow, according to the Blade.

The Senate failed to move forward on the 2011 Defense Authorization Act last week, which had repeal language included. After Republicans blocked the cloture vote on the measure, Lieberman and Collins said they would move forward with a stand-alone repeal.
