Kansas Minors Could be Barred From Using Tanning Beds

KSAL StaffMarch 9, 2016

Kansas minors could be barred from using tanning beds and sunlamps under a measure that won first round approval Wednesday in the House.

A salon owner who allowed a person younger than 18 to use one of the devices could receive a fine of up to $250 fine and disciplinary action under the measure.

Rep. Kathy Wolf Moore, a Democrat from Kansas City and supporter of the bill, says those who use tanning beds are 59 percent more likely to develop melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer.

But Republican Rep. Randy Powell, of Olathe, says the bill would infringe upon parents’ rights to make decisions for their children.

A final vote in the House is expected Thursday.
