“Building on legislation already helping save lives in California, I am happy to sign this bill because it further encourages safe and responsible driving,” Schwarzenegger said in a statement.

Simitian also is the author of the law that requires motorists to use hands-free devices if they chat on the phone while driving. He intended to ban texting shortly before the Legislature approved the hands-free law in 2006, but decided against including the provision in order to improve the hands-free bill’s chances of passage.

But since then, "Milk has become much more of a symbol of the gay community," Mc Lear said, citing the eponymous movie starring Sean Penn, Milk's posthumous receipt of the Presidential Medal of Freedom and his induction into the California Hall of Fame.

Milk served briefly as San Francisco's supervisor before he and Mayor George Moscone were assassinated in 1978 by Dan White, a city supervisor who had recently resigned but wanted his job back.

The legislation passed the state Senate in May and the state Assembly last month.

The legislation has been divisive, with the governor's office receiving more than 100,000 phone calls and e-mails, most of them in opposition, spokeswoman Andrea Mc Carthy said last month.

Under the measure, the governor each year would proclaim May 22 -- Milk's birthday -- as a day of significance across the state.

The bill was one of 704 signed Sunday -- most of them near the midnight deadline -- by Schwarzenegger, said spokesman Aaron Mc Lear.

Arnold Schwarzenegger on Wednesday signed into law a measure banning motorists from text-messaging and e-mailing while operating a vehicle. The penalty is a base fine, which is uniform across the state, but does not include the fees added by local municipalities.
