A spokesperson for U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk said the state's junior senator is still undecided on a potential vote to repeal the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, and that he opposes calling a vote on the bill before a federal spending bill is approved. The House voted yesterday to pass a stand-alone repeal, which now awaits action in the Senate. Last week, Kirk joined Republicans in filibustering a defense authorization bill that contained a repeal of the policy. Republican Sens. Susan Collins (ME), Scott Brown (MA), Olympia Snowe (ME), and Lisa Murkowski (AK) have vowed to support the stand-alone measure.
