Wyoming Senators Back Adoption Birth Certificate Bill
SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming’s U.S. senators are co-sponsoring legislation that would help parents of adopted children from abroad correct errors on their birth certificates.
Senators Mike Enzi and John Barrasso have been working with Michael and Stacy Sweeney of Sheridan to help them fix problems with the Ethiopian birth certificates for four of their children.
The bill would require that the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service recognize state court orders that change a child’s birth date.
It recently passed the Senate. The House is expected to consider the bill early in 2014.
