U.S. (KXAN) — The U.S. military could soon lift a ban on transgender members. Defense officials say a plan could be finalized as soon as Monday and signed off on Wednesday.
If the plan is put into place this week, it could officially go into effect by next week. Defense secretary Ash Carter announced last year that the transgender ban would be lifted unless a review could prove it would negatively impact the military.
Currently, the U.S. military says they disqualify transgender troops for medical reasons.
