Hawaii lawmakers are asking President Barack Obama to put his future presidential library in the state where he was born and raised.

The state House Tourism, Culture and International Affairs Committee unanimously passed a resolution Monday urging Obama to choose Hawaii as the location for the library, which will serve as the repository for the documents, records and artifacts of his presidency.

The resolution would be mailed to Obama if it's approved by the full House, which appears likely because 47 of 51 representatives signed on to it. Even several Republicans are supporting the effort.

Hawaii will likely have to compete with Illinois, Obama's other home state.
