Teen Tanning Limits Closer To Adoption In Colorado

DENVER (AP) — Tanning bed limits for minors are closer to approval in Colorado.

The state House voted 39-23 to ban people under 15 from using commercial tanning beds without a doctor’s recommendation. Teens from age 15 to 17 would need parental permission every six months to use commercial tanning beds.

Colorado is one of the few states with no law limiting tanning bed use by children, though most commercial salons request parental permission for underage clients. The tanning bill limit was opposed by some dermatologists, who said everyone under 18 should be prohibited from commercial tanning beds.

The bill now heads to the Senate.
