MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) State Sen. John Campbell, a Democrat, says he will sponsor the bill in the legislative session beginning in January. He
acknowledges it is unlikely to gain ground unless Gov. Jim Douglas
signals support.

The Republican governor said Thursday that the civil union law
is sufficient but wouldn't say whether he would veto a gay-marriage
bill.

Only Massachusetts and Connecticut allow gay marriage.
California voters recently overturned a ruling allowing the
practice there.

Several other states sanction domestic partnerships or civil
unions. Vermont became the first state to do so, in 2000.
