Council Committee Endorses HR 1283

Posted: Updated:
San Diego could be the next major city to support the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." A city council committee Wednesday endorsed HR 1283.

The Military Readiness Enhancement Act would allow gays to serve openly in the military.

Wednesday, the committee members heard public comment before their decision.

"I understand what Mr. Clinton was trying to do with some dignity, but I think it's important for us to take the next step, and I think it's important for this council to support the legislation," said City Councilman Tony Young

The endorsement now moves to the full City Council for consideration.

Similar resolutions have passed in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Palm Springs.
