The Boy Scouts reviewing a resolution that would let local organizations decide if gays and lesbians can serve as leaders.

After the ouster of a lesbian Cub Scout den mother in Ohio, more than 275,000 signed a petition in protest. The Boy Scouts of America now considering a resolution that would allow local councils to decide whether to accept gays as troop leaders.

A decision likely by next May, but a Scout spokesman says there’s no expectation the policy will be changed.

In 2000 the Supreme Court ruling the 102 year old organization is exempt from state laws prohibiting anti-gay discrimination.
