Proposed legislation would ban teens from tanning beds

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (KSWO)- Minors would no longer be able to use tanning beds if some Oklahoma senators have their way. However, the proposal has failed in years past.

One tanning business owner says education is the key to staying safe and healthy.
She doesn't allow her clients to tan more than once a day and only every other day.
When it comes to teens, she already requires parents to sign off.

"We tend to go to extremes, let’s just cut it out completely; well why don't we spend some time educating our youth," said Eloise Cox.

The bill has so far been approved by the Health and Human Services committee.
