The House voted Wednesday to repeal the "don't ask, don't tell" law, which prevents openly gay soldiers from serving in the military.
The "don't ask, don't tell" law has been in place since 1993, and forbids military recruiters from asking soldiers about their sexual preferences, and forbids openly gay soldiers from serving in the armed forces.
More than 13,500 soldiers have been dismissed since the law was put into place in 1993.
Even though the Senate currently has a Democratic majority, there is still Republican opposition to the issue that might make it difficult to pass.
Last May, the House voted 234-194 to repeal "don't ask, don't tell" as part of a larger defense bill, but then the bill stalled in the Senate and was never voted on.
Do you think the "don't ask, don't tell" law will be repealed by the Senate?
