GOP Sen. Tommy Tuberville said Tuesday he will release almost all of the holds he has placed on military promotions over the Pentagon covering abortion-related costs for service members and their families.

“I’m releasing everybody. I still got a hold on, I think, 11 four-star generals. Everybody else is completely released from me," Tuberville said, according to NBC News

According to The Hill, Tuberville is on board with a plan presented by fellow GOP Sens. Dan Sullivan, of Alaska, and Joni Ernst, of Iowa, that would release his holds on military officers that are at a three star level and below. 

The hold will remain in place for other officers with four stars.
