Arnold Schwarzenegger signed two gay-rights bills before midnight on Sunday, one recognizing Harvey Milk and another recognizing same-sex marriages performed in other states. The second bill, Schwarzenegger said, would "provide the same legal protections that would otherwise be available to couples that enter into civil unions or domestic partnerships out of state. In short, this measure honors the will of the people in enacting Proposition 8 while providing important protections to those unions legally entered into in other states." Schwarzenegger originally vetoed the bill honoring Milk, the slain San Francisco supervisor, saying that Milk should be honored locally. Both bills were written by California state Sen. Mark Leno.
