House Panel OKs Tanning Salon Bill

KSAL StaffFebruary 6, 2014

A Kansas House committee has endorsed legislation that would bar people younger than 18 from using commercial tanning beds.

Thursday’s 11-4 vote by the Health and Human Services Committee sends the bill to the full House for consideration.

Businesses that allow people under 18 use their tanning beds could be fined $250 for each violation. Minors could still get commercial spray tans.

The committee amended the bill to let minors use commercial tanning beds if prescribed by a doctor to treat an identified skin condition.

Supporters of the bill cited medical studies and committee testimony that exposure to tanning bed radiation at a young age increases the risks of developing melanoma and other skin cancers.
