Hawaii lawmakers on Wednesday delayed a bill that would have restricted travel from seven countries until after President Donald Trump signed an executive order suspending entry to the U.S. from six Muslim-majority countries and suspending refugee resettlement.
The Hawaii House of Representatives voted to hold off on the bill, a result of concerns about how the executive order would affect Hawaii, the second state to pass a bill limiting travel from Iran.
The bill was sent to the Senate on a party-line vote.
A House Democratic leader on the panel said the delay would allow time to address the concerns raised by Hawaii officials.
The Senate has been considering a similar bill, which is set to take effect on January 16.
The Senate voted down the House bill earlier this month.
