Secretary of Defense James Mattis has until February 21 of next year to implement President Trump’s directive that prevents “transgenders” from serving in the U.S. military. Meanwhile, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) have filed an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that would delay for 60 days any review by the defense secretary.
If the Gillibrand-Collins amendment becomes part of the final spending bill, then the ban on the gender-confused in the military would be delayed until spring 2018.
