A Michigan legislator has introduced a bill that would require presidential candidates to present their original birth certificates or certified copies to appear on the state's ballot.
The measure introduced Tuesday alludes to persistent claims by some critics that President Barack Obama was born overseas and shouldn't be eligible for office.
Hawaii state records show that Obama was born in there in 1961. Some critics say they still believe Obama was born outside the U.S., and potential Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has raised questions about Obama's birthplace.
So-called "birther" legislation has been introduced in roughly a dozen states.
Republican Rep. Mike Callton of Nashville says his measure isn't just about Obama. Callton says other presidential candidates have had their citizenship questioned.
