Courtesy of Trevor Thomas, Communications Director of SLDN, here is the 56-43 roll-call vote on the motion to end debate on S. 3454, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2011.
It shuodl be noted that Majority Leader Harry Reid voted no as aprocedural motion so he would be in the minority to bring up the measure again in the future.
The same can not be said of the two Senators from Arkansas both "Democrats in name Only" who both voted against moving forward with debating the NDAA with the DADT repeal measure intact. David Pryor and Blanche Lincoln both voted no, even though nearly 80 percent of Americans in recent polls support DADT repeal (I wonder if there any recent Arkansas polls on this issue?)
It is very likely the bill will come up again AFTER the mid-term elections but before the end of the year.
