Military HIV ban defeated--for now.

  • Published 1996 in AIDS action update


Congress voted to pass the Omnibus Appropriations Act of 1996 (H.R. 3019), a bill that contains language that will repeal the military HIV ban. The ban, introduced by Representative Robert Dornan (R-CA) and considered by many to be extremist and discriminatory, was defeated through coalition-building and the strong support of Congress.
