PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona House has approved a bill that would require President Barack Obama to show his birth certificate if he hopes to be on the state's ballot for a re-election bid.

The House approved the measure on a 31-29 vote, sending it to the Senate.

Supporters say the bill would help settle a controversy over whether Obama was born in the United States. Opponents say it's a waste of time that makes Arizona mocked by the rest of the country.

In Hawaii, lawmakers are moving closer to passing a measure allowing the state to ignore repeated requests for President Barack Obama's birth certificate.
