(Harrisburg) -- A proposal to give adoptees access to their original birth certificates is on the agenda for a state House panel. 

The House Children and Youth Committee plans to take up the proposal during a meeting in the Capitol today.

The sponsor says people who were adopted want better information about their ancestors and that some are interested in relationships with their birth families while others hope for details about medical history.
