Udall joins effort to end military's gay ban

Colorado's senior senator is joining an effort to repeal the military's ban on openly gay service members.

Sen. Mark Udall planned to join other Democrats Wednesday in proposing a repeal of a 1993 law banning gay servicemen and women.

Top Pentagon officials and the White House have called for an end to the ban. A proposal to change the policy is pending in the U.S. House, and Udall is co-sponsoring a similar bill in the Senate.

In a statement, Udall called the ban on gay service members "outdated."
