DENVER (CBS4) – A bill restricting the use of tanning beds for teenagers in Colorado went up for its first vote.

A House committee heard testimony on the bill Tuesday afternoon.

The proposal would prohibit children under the age of 15 from using tanning beds unless they have a doctor’s prescription. Teens between 15 and 18 would require permission from their parents or a doctor’s prescription.

Right now Colorado is one of just a few states that isn’t currently limiting tanning bed use.
