... here is the text of the repeal language (absent a minor techincal fix, that does not affect the key elements of the legislation): The text link is here.So, the law has been passed, but it is not yet time for people in the military to let down their guard about their sexual orientation. But soon the repeal will go into effect.
It is important to note that the EFFECTIVE DATE of the repeal is 60 days AFTER specific actions by the Secretary of Defense, and the President have occurred, including such things as having the necessary regulations prepared to bring the repeal into force.
So, in short, passage of this repeal legislation today does NOT automatically repeal DADT. There are still administrative steps to be taken in the future. Even when those steps are taken, there is still the additional 60 days period AFTER that before this repeal is complete.
