      Baldacci declares 'proud day' as he signs gay-rights bill into law

      AUGUSTA—Gov. John Baldacci has signed into law a bill to protect
      gays and lesbians from discrimination.

      Just before signing the bill before an audience of cheering
      supporters in the State House Cabinet Room, the governor declared
      this to be a "proud day for Maine." Baldacci, who submitted the
      bill, said it not only "offers essential civil rights," but
      also "serves as a welcome."

      The law, which received final House and Senate passage Wednesday
      night, takes effect in late June. It makes Maine the sixth and final
      New England state to adopt a gay rights law.

      But opponents aren't giving up.

      The Christian Civic League of Maine plans to announce its next move
      Thursday afternoon—and that could be a petition drive to send the
      legislation out to voters.
