The Arizona Senate approved the so-called ‘birther’ bill requiring 2012 presidential candidates to prove they were born in the U.S. and are thus eligible to run for president.
The bill was passed 20-8 on a party-line vote with Republicans backing and Democrats opposing.
The measure includes some changes that allow for other documents beside birth certificates to be produced by presidential contenders. It now goes back to the Arizona House of Representatives for another vote.
The House previously approved the bill without new Senate changes.
The measure has come up several times in the Arizona Legislature, and has recently received a boost from real estate mogul and television personality Donald Trump, who wants Obama to produce a birth certificate.
Trump is considering a run for president in 2012 and recently met with Arizona Rep. Carl Seel (R-Anthem) who is the author of the bill.
A candidate who can’t produce records proving he or she is eligible to run for U.S. president may be excluded from next year’s ballot.
