(WTVM) – Women may not have to register for the draft after all if the Republicans in the US House of Representatives get their way.

A report from the Army Times says that members of a house committee are eliminating provisions that would require women to register for the selective service.

The idea to make women register for the draft was introduced last month.

If the new version of the bill is passed President Obama has threatened to veto it.
