Obama Administration’s Position on DOMA and DADT Repeals

The White House released its Statement of Administrative Policy H.R. 1540 – National Defense Authorization Act for FY 2012 which supports the repeal of DOMA and condemns the DADT repeal delays.

With respect to Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, the statement reads:

“The Administration strongly objects to any legislative attempts (such as section 533) to directly or indirectly undermine, prevent, or delay the implementation of the repeal, as such efforts create uncertainty for servicemembers and their families.”

It’s position on DOMA:

“The Administration strongly objects to sections 534 and 535, believes that section 3 of the so-called Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is discriminatory, and supports DOMA’s repeal.”
