Opponents say adoption bill discriminates against gays and lesbians

'What I'd say on this legislation is this ... that the governor has raised concerns in earlier and current versions - some have been addressed. We'll be closely reviewing latest changes and working with legislative partners. The governor and administration have a strong commitment to ensuring the most responsive, effective adoption system possible and we've made key progress in strengthening children's services and matching kids in foster care with permanent families. That is always the outcome we need to help meet.'
