(CNN) – The Senate Armed Services Committee on Wednesday announced two days of hearings on the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy.
On the first day, Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen will testify. The service chiefs will appear on the second day.
The hearings will come two days after the Pentagon releases its report on the impact of a repeal of the policy on the military. The authors of the study will appear on the first day of hearings.
