    One major problem with states and Birth Certificates is that each state has its own Swiss cheese set of laws and regulation different from the others.

    What is valid in one state may be unlawful or impossible in a neighboring state. It is the luck of the draw where you were born.

    Congress is the best authority to act and provide uniform procedures nation-wide, not this current hodgepodge. Good luck to that with the current and expected in-coming 2017 Congress.

    At least getting your Social Security Account Number, passport, and other federal documents is easy and uniform. It can be as simple as your physician’s statement among the four items common to the list of federal requirements.
