BREAKING: Final DADT Vote at 3 PM Today

December 18, 2010 7:27 am

We’ve just confirmed that the Senate will hold the final vote on the DADT repeal bill at 3pm today.

Here’s what happened. The bill was scheduled to come up for a vote tomorrow because under the rules of modern filibusters, even after a successful cloture vote, the majority must wait another thirty hours to hold the actual vote. However, the minority can waive that requirement. And Sens. McConnell and Reid have now come to agreement to do that.
