A proposed bill would ban anyone under 18 from tanning in a salon unless a doctor gives permission for some medical reason.
Teens wouldn’t be punished for indoor tanning, but owners allowing it could be fined and have their licenses revoked. Anyone who “aids or abets” a juvenile seeking indoor tanning could be jailed for up to two months.
The Columbus Dispatch reports that industry leaders, who contend indoor tanning is safe, are prepared to fight the measure. Salon owners say more restrictions would not prevent teens from damaging their skin.
