Teen Tanning Bill Advances

Posted on Thursday, June 2, 2011 6:44am


Californians under 18 would be banned from using tanning beds under a bill that’s been approved by the state Senate. Supporters of the legislation say it would help prevent skin cancer. Opponents argue it would hurt tanning businesses. The state already bans tanning bed use for kids under 14 and allows it with parental consent for those between 14 and 17 years old. The bill moves next to the state Assembly.
