MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama lawmakers are inching closer to approving a ban on so-called vaccine passports that require proof of coronavirus vaccination to access services from a business or state agency.

The House Health Committee on Wednesday voted to send the bill to House of Representatives for a vote. It has already cleared the Alabama Senate.

The bill contains a number of exceptions. Surgeons, dentists, medical institutions, hospitals and other health care providers are exempted.
