Starting January 1st Illinois made it illegal for anyone under 18 to use a tanning bed even with parents consent.
Now here in Indiana there is a proposal in the current short session of the state legislature to make them off limits to Hoosiers younger than 16.
Senate Bill 50 – unanimously passed by the Senate Health and Provider Services Committee – and moves on to the full Senate.
The bill would make it illegal for anyone under 15 to use a tanning bed and would require 16- and 17-year-olds to have a parent or guardian’s written consent.
33 states have some sort of regulation on tanning for minors.
