Idaho Lawmakers Bring Back Teen Tanning Bed Ban

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A year ago, bill to crack down on teen tanning died in the Senate. Now, a renewed effort aimed at preventing dangerous or deadly skin cancer has cleared the House Health and Welfare Committee, with Wednesday’s 8-2 vote.

It’s now headed to the House floor. This measure would prohibit the use of ultraviolet tanning devices for any minor child under the age of 16. It requires parental consent for minor children ages 16 and 17. Last year’s bill included escalating fines of up to $1,000. This year’s effort includes citations of $100 for first offenses, rising to $300 for second offenses and $500 for all subsequent offenses.

If the measure clears the House, it’ll go to the Senate Health and Welfare Committee — the panel where last year’s measure died.
