UNDATED, WI (WTAQ) - Some Wisconsin Boy Scout of America officials are trying to assess what the impact of the landmark decision in Texas on openly gay scouts will mean.

Support for the change was relatively widespread among delegations from this state.

More than 61 percent of the 1,400 members of the Boy Scouts’ national voting body voted Thursday to end the ban.  Openly gay scout leaders will still be prohibted from being part of the organization. 

That policy takes effect January 1st.

In most cases, leaders say it’s too early to tell whether the new policy will cause scouts to quit or donations to fall off.
