State Bill Would Restrict Use of Tanning Beds

Bill would require kids under 18 to have prescription

State lawmakers are considering a bill that would require anyone under the age of 18 to have a doctor's prescription before using a tanning bed.

The bill, which was approved by the state Senate Health Car Committee, must make its way through other committees before a vote, according to the 'Fayetteville Observer'.

Under the current law, children between the ages of 13 and 17 can use tanning beds with parental permission. Children under 13 are required to have a prescription.
