Marine Corps officials are seeking additional guidance from the Pentagon regarding service members' use of social media.

California Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter's office says the Marine Corps notified him of the plans Friday.

They come amid discharge proceedings against Camp Pendleton Marine Sgt. Gary Stein, who criticized President Barack Obama on Facebook.

Hunter had urged military authorities to withdraw the proceedings because policies regarding service members' use of social media are ambiguous.

A Marine Corps administrative board concluded after a daylong hearing Thursday that Stein violated the Pentagon policy limiting free speech and should be dismissed.

The case now goes to a general who can accept or deny the recommendation.
