House Bill Would Make Birth Certificates Available for $100
A Hawaii state House bill is taking aim at the numerous requests for Pres. Barack Obama’s birth certificate by granting access to the document for $100.
House Bill 116 notes the state Health Department has been hit with numerous requests over the past two years by people wanting to see Obama’s original long-form birth certificate.
“The continually increasing number of requests have caused the department of health distress as state resources, including employee time and energy, have to be diverted from other department responsibilities, the introduction to the bill notes.
“It may be the case that if requesters were to have access to the actual birth records of officials who require United States citizenship to hold public office, any ambiguity surrounding the issue may be dispelled.”
