White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said today that President Barack Obama will sign the recently passed Don’t Act, Don’t Tell Repeal Act of 2010 into law this coming Wednesday, Dec. 22., according to USA Today.
Gibbs also said that the White House has discussed hosting a news conference after Congress adjourns for its Christmas break Wednesday morning and would include a formal signing then.
According to the article, the White House and the Pentagon are currently investigating “implementation and legal issues” of repeal. Once repeal is signed into law, the president, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen and Secretary of Defense Robert Gates would need to certify the policy could be lifted without adverse effect to the military.
There is also a Congressional mandate for a wait of 60 days after certification before the policy is lifted.
